Hi

Every time I use Premiere Pro I get a warning:

Error parsing properties list from file"Users/**/Documents/Adobe...

I have searched the internet and this forum and the only answer I can find is to uninstall an anti-virus software which is not installed on my computer.

Can anyone tell me what this message means, how I can fix the error or , if not, if I can safely ignore it.

I am working on a MacBook Pro OS 10.12.6 with 8gb memory

Premiere Pro CC 2017 v11.1.2

Thanks

Deborah

I might have solved the problem.I went to Documents/Adobe/PremierePro/11.0/Profile-dm/ArchivedLayoutsThe folder was full of original and alias UserWorkspace.xml files which I deleted.It has created a new UserWorkspace.xml file but so far no error messages.It would be great if someone from Adobe could comment on this.ThanksDeborah

The folder was full of original and alias UserWorkspace.xml files which I deleted.

It has created a new UserWorkspace.xml file but so far no error messages.

It would be great if someone from Adobe could comment on this.

You saved my life bro. I googled here and there. I tried everything people said, and adobe said. It didn't work. I delete my program, and reinstall. It didn't work. It seems like only way I can do is jump up from 2019 to 2021 version. but I'm in the middle of feature film. I workd for 6 months, so I was afraid. Your way finally works ~Thank you !

Same here.  Brand new user and new install.  Really annoying, especially that there is no response from Adobe.

I had same issue and found it was because dropbox was syncing my documents folder. 

I'm on Windows 10, Premiere 2021

Documents > Adobe  -- Right click, Don't sync with Dropbox.com

wow dropbox. Dropbox made me problem on mac (I have old os version). Preview for files didn't work. So I deleted dropbox on desktop, and it figured out. 

 

I had premiere problem on window. I solved with the solution someone above said. However, I also deleted dropbox too at that time. 

 

Why does dropbox make this kind of problem? (I use dropbox only via web since then)

 

Q) Why does it make problem ? ("dropbox was syncing my documents folder") 

(I didn't understand it)
