Access Denied

When I was trying to install a mod with IMG Editor 2.0 it gies me the 'file access denied' error. I go to my games properties, uncheck Read Only and hit OK. I go back to Properties and it's rechecked! It just won't stay unchecked..

Uncheck "read only" for the entire Rockstar Games folder instead of just the SA one. It will then apply "no read only" to every file and folder in your install. smile.gif

Like this, correct?

Uncheck the box, hit "apply", and run the tool.

 

If it doesn't work, try running it as an admin.

 

And just because the folder says read only doesn't always mean the files are read only. sly.gif

 

Make sure your user account has clearance to modify/save things in that particular folder. Check the user permissions under the "security" tab.

yup just like that.

 

I'm Administrator, or at least I should be. it's still 'file access denied'.

Bump.

 

Nobody knows what can be done to fix this?

Temporary solution -

 

Copy > paste the gta3.img and gta3.dir to your desktop. Edit them there and then paste them back.

 

I guess you could try compatibility mode too...

This is a win 7 64 bug. Not sure what causes it. The workaround I use is to give the program admin rights. For example, I set my IMG tool to always 'run as administrator'. Now, even though the folder insists on being read only, the admin privileged IMG tool can make changes. Try it and see if it works for you.
