Adobe photoshop script: suddenly psdFile.save() is not working in Photoshop 24.3.0

Hi

I am using Photoshop 23.0 and the folllowing code is working perfectly for me -

var outputFolder = new Folder("E:/Test/");
var outputPath = outputFolder.fsName;
var selectedColorProfile = "Adobe RGB (1998)";

var outputPsdFile = new File(outputPath + "\\" + "test.psd");
var designPsd = app.documents.add( UnitValue(18,'IN'), UnitValue(12,'IN'), 300, "",NewDocumentMode.RGB, DocumentFill.WHITE,1.0, BitsPerChannelType.EIGHT, selectedColorProfile );
designPsd.saveAs(outputPsdFile);
//Many other edit operations
designPsd.save();
designPsd.close();


But my friend is using Photoshop 24.3.0 and he is getting the following error at designPsd.save() line -

Untitled.jpg

This is really strange! I changed the line to -

app.activeDocument.save();
But getting the same error -
Untitled2jpg.jpg


Finally I changed the line to -

app.activeDocument.close(SaveOptions.SAVECHANGES);

This is really surprising! The very simple save() funtion is behaving differently in two version of Photoshop! Can you please explain what is going on and how to resolve it in the best possible way?

Many thanks in advance...

Why hasn’t your friend updated Photoshop?

Hi @c.pfaffenbichler 

Thanks a lot for your reply! But how to handle codes that would be deployed to many end users who would use many different versions of photoshop?
Should I explicitly check the specific version of photoshop before file.save() and if it's 24.3, then code differently?

Thanks again.

I don’t consider that a meaningful approach to address something like this.

The bug was fixed within less than 30 days (if I remember correctly), if some Photoshop users don’t maintain their tools properly that should not be your problem. 

 

Only when using fairly new features (like neural filters for example) in a Script would it make sense, in my opinion, to verify if the Photoshop version meets the requirements.
