"Unable to save...Path not found" error randomly occurs
« on: April 25, 2013, 11:24:23 pm »
When I first opened SE after installing the Beta version, I got an error message saying it could not save vuserdefs.e to the config directory. If I open Tools/Options, about half the time I get the same error. Other times it works okay. The directory exists, and vuserdefs.e exists. I did not have this issue with V17

V18 does 64-bit file IO calls. What type of file system is your remote drive using?

Thanks. I'll check it out Monday. We run that version of Windows Server at SlickEdit.

Reproduced. Thanks. I'm guessing this will be easy to fix.

Hi,

I also just ran into this when saving from Win7 64-bit to a Linux partition exported via Samba.

This appears to be fixed in Beta 2.

Beta 2 also fixed my "save to a Samba" partition problem.  From the release notes it sounds like the core problem was due to UNC path.
