Do you only have one Layer Comp in your document?

It's a minor bug if the document contains only one Layer Comp. It can be easily solved by opening the script file located in the Photoshop application folder Presets>Scripts>Layer Comps To Files.jsx

Change line 167 from:

if ( compsCount < 1 ) {

Save the script and run it again.

Though, if there's only one comp in the file, it's just as easy to use File>Save As... 🙂

Where did you get the message "cannot write to file"? When trying to save the script? Or when trying to run the script?

Ahh. It's a permissions issue. You may need to open the file as an administrator. (if you're on windows)
