Access denied opening workspace
« on: September 06, 2016, 09:55:21 pm »
I have Slick B5 open already.
From Explorer I double-click a VPW file on a flash drive.
Slick complains:
SlickEdit Pro
Could not save workspace file 'c:\windows\system32\DirList.vpw'

Access denied

According to PROCMON, the cmd line for vs.exe:
Command line:   "C:\Program Files\SlickEdit Pro 21.0.0 Beta5\win\vs.exe" "G:\Programming\DirList\DirList.vpw"
Current directory:   C:\Windows\system32\

The ACCESS_DENIED error is from the Slick that was already running, not the vs.exe that Explorer launched.
