Can't save to disk
Posted by: Heather Dorman (ID *****9686) Date: April 12, 2007 at 08:42:52

Hello. I have version 7.0, and have been trying to save to a disk. In following the directions (File-Save a copy-chosing the disk drive ect.), I get the error message "You do not have permission to open this file. See the owner of the file or an administrator to obtain permission". I purchased the 7.0 version I think in 2003, and wanted to save it to disk so that I may transfer the program from my home computer to a new lap top. I've tried everything and can't get a copy to go on disk. I know that years ago I moved it from the initial computer it was on to the present hom computer, could an error have occured during that transfer years ago that prevents me from making a copy now? (Should mention I have never attempted to make a copy in the past) If I buy the upgrade 8.5a and update, will it fix this problem? Please help, I have over 1300 entries back to 1600's and don't want to have to re-enter all that data on a new computer. Thanks.
