cannot write to the changes file

Ben Coman
Before creating an Issue, can someone confirm the following behaviour on Windows 10 ?
Downloaded and unzipped into the same folder...
Double-clicking  Pharo.exe  produces notification...
    Information
    Pharo cannot write to the changes file named       
       C:\Users\....\pharo\Pharo7.0-32bit-eb0a6fb.changes.
    Please check that you have write permission for this file.
    You won't be able to save this image correctly until you fix this.

However if I edit to   AST-Tests-Core > NumberParserTest >> testFail
to add "My Comment"  
then close all windows, Save&Quit the Image,
restart Pharo by double-clicking on Pharo.exe,
and open System Browser on testFail
I can see my comment.

I'm not clear on exactly how it works but I presume that restarting the
Image would require "My Comment" to be read from the changes file,
but notepad shows its not in the changes file.
So perhaps the error notification is part of a transition in-Image sources and
nothing to worry about?

Hi Ben,

I've seen this (on Windows 10), 32 bit.

It wasn't happening last time I used Win10, some time in the last 4 months.

Cheers,
Alistair

If I open a playground (after getting the "cannot write" error above)
and execute:


    SourceFiles close; ensureOpen



The changes file is successfully opened and written to.


Cheers,
Alistair

Hi,

For my part it inform that the source file cannot be written at launch
but in the end it is written.

This problem comes from a refactoring in the location system I think.

Great! That was quick work (thanks Pavel.)
Do you have an issue for me to follow, or should I create it?
