Dave KobleskyAfter Effects preference folder
by on Dec 13, 2016 at 7:03:41 pm

I work at a large corporation which is highly dependent on external network drives where you are supposed to store a lot of your information. Somehow my version of After Effects has its preference folder set to an external drive which means that After Effects does not launch when I am not on the network.

I was hoping that I could change whatever setting that is to my local drive so that I could launch AE whether I am on the network or not.

I cannot find this file anywhere......

Does anyone have a clue where I can find this?

Talk to your IT department about this. Any advice we may give could be totally wrong.

LOL. Thanks for your reply, but I was trying to avoid just that. If you have ever worked at a giant company, contacting IT can often turn into a big hassle and take a long time. I was hoping I could just find an .ini file (or something like that) and change a setting from H:\ to C:\

Looks like I will wind up contacting IT anyway. Thanks again!

Now, here's a thought: find the preference folder on the network. Copy it to your machine. It's worth a shot.
