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.
any foreign language in the path?
did you try to save on other drives?
Hey phisphiral, did you ever figure this out? Having the same problem.
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
