I am staying with my parents until the 1st and wanted to work on a BYOND project during downtime between family events. I installed BYOND and unzipped my project directory. Upon attempting to compile and run I got some new error. Investigation revealed that the dir was read-only and this was causing issues saving the dmb.
I open up the BYOND dir properties and de-select read only. It applies it to all subfolders as well. Or rather, it should, but when I go to check, the whole dir is somehow read-only again!
So I check my account security settings. No problem there- full administrator access. Plus, it should have told me if I had insufficient rights to change something. I then begin to notice that all the dirs on the root drive are read only and ignore attempts to change that. Odd.
Any ideas? The only thing that I could come up with is that maybe the McAffee Security Center that is running may be reverting them.
