Pharo 7 image cannot write changes message on starup

Sanjay Minni
Hi

I get the following message when I try to startup the latest Pharo 7 image
(32 bit VM in Windows).

    "Information
     Pharo cannot write to the changes file named
C:\...\Pharo7.0-32bit-eb0a6fb.changes.
     Please check that you have write permission for this file."

This is a desktop and there is really no issues o permissions
What is wrong here

regards
Sanjay

Hi Sanjay, 

It depends on where you installed Pharo. The ... in the path cited is important. (And maybe Pharo elided the path.)

If the path involves either of the Program Files directories, they cannot be written by an unprivileged user/program.

Check your access rights on each directory or file in the path via their properties.

Hi Richard,

the path for the image/changes/sources is

   C:\Users\Myself\Documents\DevArea\p7\Pharo7.0-32bit-eb0a6fb.changes.

in which I have all the rights (this is a desktop in which I have admin
rights)
the pharo image messages also shows the same path (in my earlier post I had
replaced with ...)

the VM is is a separate directory which is in the path

so what could be the issue here

Hi Sanjay,

You're not the only one. :-)  This problem has been reported on the
pharo-dev mailing list as well.

Cheers,
Alistair

I'm not regularly using Windows, but a workaround is to create a
startup file with:

SourceFiles close; ensureOpen

in it.

Cheers,
Alistair

permissions ..." is still there but I I install packages I can see .changes

Right.  This isn't a fix, it just opens the files after the initial
attempt fails.
