"xcoll: can't write file" error

Post by vitalispopoff » Tue Jun 04, 2013 10:32 am

Windows 7
Max 6.1
AL 9.0.4

I'm currently working on patch that needs to write/save external data. I've decided to use coll for that - easy to implement in patch, quite fast, and most of all - the saved data files easy to edit with standard textedit/notepad.

Everything was fine as long, as I was working on it at OSX 10.8 - coll was saving/loading the data, but when I moved the project to Windows 7 - max reports the "can't write the file" and "can't read the file" error messages.

Any idea how to work it out?

it to easy to be true.

Problem is solved: Windows 7 Home Premium is setting strange restrictions on user profiles and software. The solution is to run the Live with in administration mode (which is not that obvious if You're back to the Windows after 6 years of working in OSX environment, and your profile is set at administrator level).
