Why the message "Cannot create file"?

Recommended Posts

Guest cliffie1931

When trying to save a Panel State I must be making an error in the way I describe the panel to be saved as I can't get beyond the "Cannot Create file" message.Guidance would be appreciated.Cliff

You have to run FSX in administrator mode. Right click on FSX icon and select Run as administrator...If this does not solve your problem then probably you have to reinstall FSX and PMDG with UAC off and with admin privileges.Hope this helps,Matyas Majzik

Do you have UAC turned off?What folder do you have FSX installed to?Regards,Jim Karn

This happened to me too. Was nothing to do with UAC, it was 'cos the folder that contains the flightplans etc had been moved to a data disk. It MUST reside in C:Usersxxxxxxxxx

Bingo! Thanks Matyas. Right clicking on the FSX icon to launch as Administrator solved the problem.With my regards,Cliff
