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.

If turning off UAC is as mysterious to you as running things as Administrator, the forum search facility often helps: forum linkSee also this threadCheers,Brian

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.
