Permissions error while saving


I get a permissions error while saving a compiled workbook. When I click save, I get this message:

‘You don’t have permission to save in this location. Contact the administrator to obtain permission.’

I’ve tried saving unprotected files to this location and it works fine. It’s just xls padlock .xlsc files that run into trouble. I’ve tried all the solutions I’ve found on the Microsoft website, but no luck. I am using a 32-bit machine.

It does however work my other 64-bit machine.

Just wondering if you’ve seen this before.


It’s not common. Did you try the usual My Documents folder to save the XSLC file?
And are you using any third-party software such as antivirus, virtual machine or virtual environment?
