# LSOpenURLsWithRole() failed with error -1712 for the file </path/to/folder> when I attempt open .

I suddenly came across this error when I attempted to do open . to open the current directory in Finder, a command that I use quite frequently:

It persisted for a few minutes and went away by itself. I tried googling it but the only two hits I saw had to do with ImageMagick and Automator, neither of which I use. Does anyone know why it happens and how to prevent it?

• Since i updated to yosemite ( osx 10.10 ) i get this always when opening more than 6 urls simultaneously – Willem Hengeveld Nov 7 '14 at 9:10
