Error when opening any file with PhpStorm

Hi - I just downloaded PhpStorm for OS/X and would like to use the 30 day trial.  However, I can't get it to open a single file.  I've tried "Open Directory" and "Create New Project From Existing Files".  Either one when I select the directory with my PHP files, I get the error:

Error Loading Default Project
Extension is missing for storage file: /Users/Mike/fetcher

Any ideas how to fix this?  Thanks!

Mike

Hi Mike,

Most likely it is a permission issue -- sounds like PhpStorm has no write permission to that folder (to create .idea subfolder which will store the project settings)

Yup, that was it!  Thanks so much for the quick reply.

A better error message would probably be:

"Permission denied when writing /Users/Mike/fetcher/.idea"

A better better solution would be to popup an authentication box to elevate the user permission..

Well ... accordingly to this ticket: WI-1337 it was fixed long time ago... ?:|

I'm sure one of the devs will look into it.

Yeah - I never tried to create a new blank project, but this repro'ed when I opened an existing folder or even opened a single PHP file..  I fixed it with a chmod g+w on the directory..
