    Could not save as - The file may be read-only or is already open in another application

      Can anyone think of a reason why if I'm working locally on a CS3 Flash .fla on my C: drive that I would get the error:

       

      Could not save as: C:\Users\John\Desktop\Project_File\ANNUAL REPORT RELEASE\01-19-11\report_stragegy.fla

      The file may be read-only or is already open in another application. Save using a different name, or close the document and try again.

       

      I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.

       

      It happens sporadically. I haven't been able to find a reason why this error pops up when saving some of my .fla files!!

       

      The files are not set to "read only" when I right click on them and choose 'Properties' in the Windows 7.

       

       

       

      I found some somewhat similar situations with saving errors:
