Trouble with Vista

Post by natpas08 » October 5th, 2008, 5:24 pm

I just recently got a new laptop with windows vista and now when I go into the notepad to work on a campaign it won't let me save the file. I am new to campaigns so all I have been doing is changing some aspects of already made campaigns. (ex.- starting money or units to recruit) Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Under Vista you can't change the Mainlinecampaign when you installed to "c:programs/wesnoth 3.7". You either have to install it under "c:imperator/wesnoth 3.7"* or download a UMC campaign and change this in "C:\Users\natpas08\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\Wesnoth\userdata\data\campaigns"

*call the folder what you want. imperator is just what a friend of mine use. You should use the second option, because this is just like disabling the UAC.

Or try Linux, haven't tested that for myself.

It's not like disabling the UAC. UAC protects system files, and BfW is just a game, it does not need such protection. I always prefer to have separate folder "Games", often even in a separate partition, and install games there.

Though, there is yet another possibility: change security permissions of Wesnoth folder.
