"A temporary Persona file could not be created"

Recommended Posts



I'm trying to open a .ai file (from Adobe Stock) and I keep getting this message:


"Failed to open AI file. A temporary Persona file could not be created."


I installed Affinity Designer today exactly to be able to work with these files...


How can I solve this?


Thank you in advance for your feedback.

Hi rodrigopestana,

Thanks for the file (it opens fine here). Can you please press and hold ⌃(ctrl) while launching the application from Launchpad, then tick all checkboxes and press Clear in the dialog that will appear to reset the app? Does it now open the file correctly for you?
