Fixing the “One or more files in the Adobe Application Support folder… are missing” error when you start Photoshop

This error, which appears every time you start Photoshop, is apparently caused by the ‘Adobe Unit Types.osax’ file missing from the /Library/ScriptingAdditions folder. The error message suggests reinstalling Photoshop, but that seems like using a sledgehammer to bang in a nail.

I’ve got no idea how or when mine went missing, but to fix it I simply downloaded a copy of the file from here…


…and dropped it into /Library/ScriptingAdditions, hey presto, no more errors!

    Thanks. Saved a LOT of work. Crazy Adobe!

    Mine went missing when I deactivated CS 4 and had 5 installed already.

    Hey, very cool, thanks a lot, I had the same error message in both Photoshop CS5 and CS6, it fixed the error on the two versions of Photoshop installed.
