Items "Not Saved"

John Logue Updated by John Logue

When exiting a program causes a string of messages listing items that are "not saved," it means that the user has read-only access to a file that needs to be written to. If this is a network installation, possibly the security/share settings at the server need to be modified. See Your Network Data Is Read-Only.

This problem may also occur on a single Windows XP machine with multiple users. One user has full access to the program folder, but it appears as "read-only" to all other users. In this case, the user with full access must open the Properties dialog for the CFSLIB folder and set permissions so that the appropriate users have "Modify" permission.

Note:

  • For 2008 and earlier programs, If XP/Vista users are "Restricted," the computer administrator must also give all users "Modify" permission for C:\WINDOWS\CFSREG.INI or C:\WINNT\CFSREG.INI.
  • For 2009 and later programs, If XP/Vista  users are "Restricted," the computer administrator must also give all users "Modify" permission for C:\CFSLIB.

How did we do?
