Finale Error Message when Saving Files


Recommended Posts

Hello guys and girls!

I've stumbled into this problem with my music software months ago, but didn't have an account here then to ask for help.  Every time I try to save a file after working on my composition for a few minutes, I get the error message saying "Cannot create a file when that file already exists."  On the Finale forum, it recommends using "Save As...," but occasionally I get the meesage saying "Cannot rename file" and my file doesn't save.

Also when trying other methods to save files which initially work, such as saving in a different folder/subfolder from the original, I get messages with "finsave.tmp" and "Access is denied" which I can't recreate conveniently.  I've used Finale 2012 (yeah, have to mention the year and not hide it this time for extra information) for over 3 years now and only had this problem recently (relative to the length of time I've used it).  What's your solution to this predicament?

Sounds like permissions problem to me.

Check that your score files and folders are not read-only.

 

I checked my files and folders and they're not read-only.  But even if they are, how do you think I should keep my Finale from creating them that way?
