I'm running Windows 7 64bit as an administrator. I opened a new canvas in Fireworks and set it to 728x90 pixels to create a standard horizontal leaderboard banner. Then I tried to save it as a template so I wouldn't have to remember the dimensions. I chose File > Save As Template and a save dialogue box opened so I could select a location to save. I went to the Windows 7_OS (C:) > Program Files (x86) > Adobe > Adobe Fireworks CS5 > Configuration > Templates and tried to save my file, but I got the following error: You don't have permission to save in this location. Contact the administrator to obtain permission.
Well I'm the administrator and I'm not sure how you create templates you can use in Fireworks. Does anyone know where I'm going wrong?
The following link offers a possible explanation and a workaround:
The problem is that Windows Vista and Windows 7 will not allow you to write to system folders. It means that will not be able to save to the Templates folder.
A workaround has been identified. Right-click on the "Configuration" folder in the Fireworks installation directory and modify the security settings so that "Users" have write and modify privileges. This allows Fireworks and the Extension Manager to write and manages files in this folder.
Interestingly, the Templates folder was moved in Fireworks CS6 from the Application folder to the user library Application Support folder (on a Mac, that is), perhaps to avoid this type of issue.
