Saving problem


    Aug 28 2010 | 9:48 pm
    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
