There was a problem opening the preference file, try throwing it out and start again (Windows)

    Follow

    After updating to version 6.4.3 you receive an error message saying "there was a problem opening the preference file, try throwing it out and start again."

    Solution:

    Right-click the Starry Night application in the (C:)-->Program Files folder and choose "Run as Admin".

     

    On Windows 8 to run as Admin see here:
