If you can't seem to save your RSD Files and get an ''Error''

It's because of the administrator privileges ''THING''

Here are two "quick fixs".

 You are "Normally" inside this location
        C:\Program Files\Scancat-Lite-Plus

But the "Administrator" privileges, by default are set to ''READ ONLY''.
So unless you can change the ''permission'', you can not write/save to a file in this folder.

This is a well known problem with Windows 7.

So - One way is in the "Save" dialog,
     Navigate to the "Desktop" and save the file there.
     You can also create a folder there (Call it "RSD")
     The icon for creating a folder is at the top of the "Save dialog"
      Just hover your mouse and the "tag" will indicate the Icon's purpose

The other QUICK way of getting around this is to save it "outside" the Program Files folder in the Root "C:\"

I would suggest this:

You can use the Above method when in the SCL save dialog
        or
- RIGHT click on START
- Choose "Explore"
- Go to My Computer (and then) Select your main C: drive
- Be sure you are viewing the "ROOT" of your C:\ Drive
- On TOP at FILE, choose "NEW > New FOlder
- create a Folder in the "Root C:\ drive"
   such as C:\MyDatabases

Then go to FILES in SCL
  choose SAVE (etc) and navigate to that new folder in the "root".

FYI - "Our" FILES Menu In Scancat also has a neat lookup for the "last used" and "Recently Used" RSD files. So you can always use "those" to retrieve the file you saved or loaded last.

FRANKLY, I very seldom install "My" software into the default "Program Files" area, due to these type of problems. It's also a lot harder copying files out of one computer to another from Program Files folders, because Windows really hates to let you do that. So I will usually use the "Browse" on the "Location to install to:", and change it to something like
        C:\Scancat-Lite-Plus (eliminating the "\Program Files\"
It'll run just fine, but you have to remember to install all the "other stuff" such as the RSD Database files to the same "Scancat-Lite-Plus" folder or while you can use them, SCL may not go there by "default" when it looks for files.

AND - IF YOU STILL NEED HELP
