Unable to save module with module editor

Hi there!

I tried kicad on windows 10 installed on my macbook pro’s boot camp. Everything else seems to work somewhat OK but I can’t save modules edited or made with module editor. Could this be an error with the w10 or the boot camp ?



Users don’t have write access there I guess. Not a good idea to save stuff there anyway, as it might get wiped out by the next update / installation of kicad.

Save custom parts in your home directory.

You were absolutely right. Windows 10 disables all write / modify control by default even from the administrator. I needed that to modify few components from kicad libraries. I am using a general library in another folders. Thank you for the tip. Didn’t even gross my mind that it would be a permission issue.
