Saving problem

Hi,

I know this topic has been posted before but there’s never been a solution.
When saving work I get the error message:

jpatcher_saveto: error -1 writing ‘filename’.maxpat

I can save it with another name but in the Max window another error appears:

filewatcher_start: file [C:/Users/****/Documents/'filename'.maxpat] doesn’t appear to exist

I’m running version 5.1 on Windows 7. I’ve tried editing the permissions and taking ownership in Windows 7 but the problem persists.

Any help would be great.

Thanks

There is a well known issue w/ the permissions getting stuck on read only in windows 7 folders, I wonder if that’s the problem… ?

I never managed to fix the problem. I even reverted to installing windows xp but the problem is the same
