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!

New book reviews coming soon…

I’m currently reading a couple of interesting new titles from Packt

CryENGINE 3 Cookbook

Reviews will be up here when I get time to give them a proper read through.
