I have recently upgraded to MacOS Montery and the latest Illustrator release. Since the Montery upgrade I can no longer open .eps files, by either double clicking, right click and select Open, or even from the File menu. I can open .ai files with no problem. It doesnt matter if the file was created by me or not.
I haven't seen any other reports of this. Thoughts?

Apparently the files were corrupted. I cant find a way to delete this. Please close the topic.
I am getting a -54 error code when attempting to open .eps files in Adobe Illustrator - message says file is locked or in use. I am using MacOS Big Sur and this is the first time I am having such problems. Please assist.
Also Monterey? Same Illustrator version?
Where is the file located?
Did you check if you actually have sufficient user privileges? Mac OS can be quite a pain in the rear with them.
File size is larger than 0?
Does the file open in Acrobat or Photoshop?
