One step forward and two steps backward! I've installed Photoshop CS5 on my new iMac 10.9.1computer only to discover that I can not use any of my styles. They appear as small grey rectangles with the word 'exec' in the corner. When I click on the shape a window opens telling me that there is an error 'opening log file'. Fortunately I have them stored on an EHD so they can be opened on my laptop which has a 10.7.5 operating system. Has anyone experienced the same issue? I've checked the internet and found nothing that relates even closely.

I've poked around, but so far can't find anything mentioning this, Joyce. I'll look more tomorrow. Sorry, that is not a fun situation.

I see that my OS 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard) will no longer be supported and I need to upgrade to Maverick. I've read that some info on EHDs lose info when being transferred - scared to update now. Western Digital says they are working on a fix. Don't know that your problem is related, but there are some bugs that need fixing for sure. Fingers crossed that you find a cure quickly!

I'm guessing it means that I do not have the software to open the file?
Yes; or, for some reason, the file has lost the metadata the OS uses to associate it with an application. If you know what the file is, you can try to open it with a suitable app by dragging-and-dropping. If you don't know what the file is, examine it with a text editor (eg, TextEdit, TextWrangler) or, better yet, with a hex editor (eg, 0xED). Then you mighit figure out what it is and what could open it.
That is what I've found so far for you. Did you transfer or have the Apple store transfer all you files? Another questions is, we're they on a PC before you got the iMac?

Thanks so much Andrea for your help. The workings of a computer are a complete mystery to me but I did attempt to understand what you are suggesting. To answer your questions . . . I transferred my software to the new iMac. All of my files are on either a Passport EHD or Iomega EHD. I use Bridge to view the files which is what sounded the alarm. When viewing Styles on my iMac laptop they appear as .asl files. So when they appeared as grey boxes on my new iMac, I was perplexed. However, when I tried to load a style, it was recognized. Whew, now I feel like the little boy who called wolf too many times! But it's reassuring to know that there is a community of knowledgable and caring ladies. Than you
