RE: problem with writing and accessing files on the edito

It's likely installed within your Program Files (if on Windows). What OS are you on? I think Vista has some UAC (User Account Control) issues. Make sure you have administrator privileges and that the files aren't set to "Read-only" but rather "Read & Write." I think you can do this on the file's / folder's Properties.

Do you have sufficient access to make it not read only? Are you an administrator?

Have a look at this as well:
https://www.frictionalgames.com/forum/th...#pid275735

I can't really help much more beyond that however. What I can say though is if you save anything in the folder from a folder and it does not appear there, it can be found in the VirtualStore folder.

C:\Users\<user_name>\AppData\Local\VirtualStore
