    Adobe Illustrator: Error 16. What to do about It?

    I downloaded Illustrator CS6, I followed the instructions correctly. The application loads and works great for a day. Then, when I try to reopen the next day I either get Adobe Error:1 or Error:16.
    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    First of all. Go to the Adobe website and make sure your rig meets min requirements. Conflicting A/V's can also throw up such errors as they will not allow certain files to be written.

    1. Run only 1 A/V.
    2. List ALL Adobe free downloads you've currently got installed.

    You've got a simple permissions issue from either an A/V or a "free" Adobe download.
    If you are still experiencing the issue after applying this fix you can try  Illustrator Repair Toolbox
