For whatever reason, your computer decides that certain files are "special", and that only administrators can change them. If your account is an administrator, then, as I recall, you need to move the export_descr_unit file out onto the desktop, change it, save it, then move it back into the data folder. That should circumvent the problem. Otherwise, you may have to change the properties of the file to make it not 'read-only'.

Sounds like a Vista-Windows 7 problem.

The General gave you the answer.

Nice to see you again, justinius!
