Illustrator scripting: Can't save the illustration dialog box

I have a script that seemed to work yesterday, but today I am getting a popup that says "Can't save the illustration", followed by a popup that says "The object "Export As" is not currently available."

If I hit "Stop", I get this error in VSCode:

 

Runtime Error: Error Code# 1200: an Illustrator error occurred: 1346458189 ('PARM') @ file '
 
The code being run looks like this:
 

 

function exportFileToSvg(dest, doc) {
    var exportOptions = new ExportOptionsWebOptimizedSVG();
    var type = ExportType.WOSVG;
    var fileSpec = new File(dest);
    exportOptions.embedRasterImages = true;
    exportOptions.cssProperties = SVGCSSPropertyLocation.PRESENTATIONATTRIBUTES;
    // exportOptions.cssProperties = SVGCSSPropertyLocation.ENTITIES;
    exportOptions.svgMinify = true;
    doc.exportFile(fileSpec, type, exportOptions);
}

 

 
I am able to export as PNG from within the Illustrator application, just not from the script.
 
The about box indicates that it is Illustrator 25.0; VSCode lists the engine version as 25.064.
 
I'm also getting the same behavior if I'm using Illustrator 24.

It appears this was failing because the path (dest) that was being passed in didn't exist. Kind of an unfortunate error message, but I have this working again.
