As Dan says on the full name...Alexei, This happens sometimes with Windows explorer regardless of rights sometimes. A fresh reboot often sovles the Access Denied, or even closing your folder window and renavigating there.

Have you disabled the UAC yet? This can cause many problems with editing files or even installing patches.Mike S.

If you don't want to disable UAC, just drag the aircraft.cfg file to the desktop, open it, make the changes there, and save it. Then return the file to the relevant folder.
