Failed to rename old component library file C:\

Hello everyone
I am created new symbol from old library and everything is working but each modification save its displaying error 3times …
Please see the pics…

Thanks .

You are trying to save your user library to the “C:\Program Files” folder. Windows doesn’t allow this without administrator privileges that KiCad doesn’t normally have. Put your user libraries somewhere where your user has normal write privileges.


It is safest to put custom symbols and footprints in your own directory
Something like:


thanks all

thanks everybody:slightly_smiling_face:

You can define some default configuration by editing Windows also has something against.
Because of this I install whole KiCad not into “Program Files” but into defined by me other directory.
