  1. Operation cannot complete because of an unknown error. [CANT] - Crashes and will not open application

    Illustrator 24.2 and 24.2.1
    Windows 10 Home

    I've been getting the following error since version 24.2 but was still able to open and do work.

       The operation cannot complete because of an unknown error. [CANT]
    

    Yesterday I chose to update to 2.2.1 thinking it might fix that error. Now I cannot open Illustrator at all. I am not an IT person, but I have already tried the following to fix it but to no avail:

    -Restarting my machine multiple times.
    -Uninstalling and reinstalling Illustrator with options
    -Uninstalling and reinstalling Illustrator with remove options
    -Going back to an earlier version
    -Allowing…

  2. Glitchy screen when opening a new document

    I'm running MacOS Big Sur Developer Beta.
    Whenever I open a new document on illustrator, or open some existing documents, the whole screen turns red and when I try to zoom into the art-board or the document in general, it begins to glitch and white rectangles appear. I'm unable to select or move around any artwork.

  5. Can't Install or Launch ANY version of AI 2020 after the 24.2 update

    On Tuesday (6/16), I updated Illustrator 2020 to version 24.2. I launched it and created a document just fine. Then, Wednesday morning when attempting to launch, I received two different error messages, see below. I have uninstalled and re-installed every version of 2020 now and see the same error messages when I try to open it. I need to have 2020 AND 2019 both on my computer due to a plug-in for a die-cutting plotter (Graphtec plotter; software is Cutting Master 4) that doesn't have an update for AI 2020 available yet. Please help. I am the only designer at…

  10. Version 24.2.1 Crashes at Launch

    I am working on a MacBook and updated to version 24.2.1. It functioned for several days and now crashes at launch. I uninstalled the application and re-installed it, but get the same result. I keep version 23.1.1 on my computer, and it works, but of course I can not open any version 24.2.1 files.

    Mac OS Mojave, 10.14.6 (18G3020), MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2017), 3.1 GHz Intel Core i7, 16 GB 2133 MHz LPDDR3

  11. new project presets not appearing

    I am starting a course to learn Adobe Illustrator. However, when I click on "create new" the dialogue box that opens only populates with Adobe Stock templates. No matter if I click print, web, or mobile there are no presets or options for me to change the project settings. Kind of hard to begin the course if I can't create a project with the specific setting for my assignments.

  12. Cannot create new projects or load artwork.

    When I try to 'Create New' or load an old artwork, the artboard does not generate. The screen either a) remains the same (see picture) or b) goes completely white. Nothing will generate on the screen. If I zoom in or out, nothing changes. If I create shapes, they don't generate.

    Basically the artboard/screen does not load at all.

  18. When I open Illustrator files the screen is filled with black and grey lines.

    I have been working on a project on illustrator and after a few days of working on it I open the file to see this screen filled with gray and black lines. None of the options on the top are visible and all the tools and properties windows are missing.

    Windows 10 Pro - Illustrator 24.1.2

    I tried opening the file from the illustrator menu, from file explorer and tried creating a new .ai file as well.

    I expected to resume working on my project.

    The screen was filled with black grey and white lines and I couldn't find any…

  19. AI 2020 (v24) fails to open - error loading plugins

    Illustrator 2020 (v24) crashes on launch. I am running it on an iMac running under OS 10.14.6.

    I attempted to open Illustrator by clicking the Open button within the Creative Cloud launch window and by double-clicking the AI app within the application folder. Both launches resulted in the following error being reported, then the application failed to open:

    Error loading plugins.
    SmartExport.aip
    SmartExportUI.aip

    Attached is a copy of the error report that I sent to Apple.
