    Problem 'Can't Save To This Location'.


    I have a win10 machine with IIS on it.

    Today I created a directory in Inetpub\wwwroot and made an index.html file with Kompozer and went to save it in there.

    Got told I had no permissions for that.

    I went and changed permissions for that folder to full control for owner/creator (me) but it didn't help.

    I'm logged on at all times as admin.

    Is this a directory thing, a file thing or an IIS thing? Perhaps I should have done something in IIS when I made that new directory?

    :)

    You Don't Have Permission to Save to This Location

    It was Bitdefender! The dialogue box made me think it was Windows doing the blocking and I received no notification of any blocked access by Bitdefender. I opened Bitdefender, went to the unread alerts (though I was never alerted) and found the blocked app
    event. I used the interface to unblock Matlab and retried the save with success.

    Anyone else with this problem: check blocked apps in your firewall (or maybe I'm the only one...)

    You Don't Have Permission to Save to This Location

    Hi,

    For us to resolve this issue regarding not being able to save due to an error message, we need to set the level of access on the Group Membership. Here are the steps:

    1. Right-click on Start button then select Run.

    2. Select the user account that is giving you the error message.

    3. Click on Properties.

    4. Open the Group Membership tab.

    5. Set the level of access that you want to give the user.

    6. Select Administrator and click Apply then exit.

    7. Restart your computer and see if your still getting the same error.

    Get back to us if you need further assistance.
