Don't recognize if this is ideal place - it's not a pic research yet it's not related to Photoshop techniques either. Either method, right here goes:

It's Sunday and also I have actually a couple of points I desire to photoshop, haven't had actually the time in a while so tright here I was, eager to get started. And then PS 5.1 wont begin. I get an error message and I haven't readjusted a anything. Worked just fine a week ego.

You are watching: Could not open a scratch file because the file is locked

The error is the one described here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DUXgvyo1EOA

But that solution doesn't assist. I opened disk energy manager and ran "Repair Disk Permissions" - I have no concept what that does (I check out to perform that somewhere) and it doesn't work either.

Does anyone know what's going on? I'm on mac OS 10.7, Photoshop 5.1 and Lightroom 3.5 (not that I think the last issue - however tbelow you have actually it)

EDIT: Display shots of the error message as well as the Disk Utility after the fix: http://imgur.com/a/uRrD1

Interelaxing. You're not alone; it seems to be a instance of bad code in PS for Windows. http://forums.adobe.com/message/4528258This is really not the easy solution, yet they say it works.Good luck.Edit: better research study says this, which would be the basic means to fix difficulties."Actually I simply ran right into this myself below on my new machine. It appears that numerous CS6 programs, consisting of PS, do not correctly interact through Windows' UAC and for this reason does not cause the correct dialogs the first time it is launched. This deserve to be addressed by invoking the Ctrl+Alt+Shift command also to trash the prefs and also then simply choose magic the UAC disk access dialog will appear. Once you have evidenced it, PS will run simply fine. Go, figure!"Also-

"If you have larger troubles, host down Alt, Ctrl, and Change keys (Mac: Command, Option, Shift) while starting up Photoshop. A dialog box will appear asking if you wish to delete the preferences/settings file."

thx, Im on Mac though - I found this as well:

"If you have larger troubles, host dvery own Alt, Ctrl, and Change tricks (Mac: Command also, Option, Shift) while starting up Photoshop. A dialog box will certainly appear asking if you wish to delete the preferences/settings file."

And it didn't job-related :-(

Ugh. I seriously hope I dont need to speak to Adobe "support"

Uhm, I think so - if that's what opening PS via command+alt+change does - ? I switched over to Mac a year ago, still haven't really figured it out, I guess. Can you help by pointing me to where I can execute this manually, in case I've done it wrong?

Thanks for your feedback!

EDIT: cmd+option+transition and opening PS results in a "Delete the Adobe Photoshop Settings File?" pop up that results in nothing brand-new once clicked "yes" to.
