I am getting an error in AdWords Editor that says "Internal Google error" in version 11.7.0. Does anyone know why this is happening? It is only in one of my accounts.

Is it the account associated with the email address you used to post this message?

Yes, it is that email account.

The email used to try and post to that account from Editor starts with google5, which has read-only access.

 

I'm guessing you downloaded the account using a security code you got from a browser window where google5@ was the logged-in user.

See the following, posted by AdWordsEng-Igor for how re-associate your local copy with a different email, without downloading again:
