    Default ERROR! Unable to save ktr/kjg files

    I am testing 2.5.0 GA and when I try to save a transformation or job to my local disk I get the following error:

    org.apache.commons.vfs.FileSystemException: Could not create file "file:///C:/Documents and Settings/egg/My Documents/tr.kjb

    Too weird. I have the same problem.
    I can save in any other directory, even a subdirectory, just not in the Windows home directory itself.

    I will investigate :-)

    The full error I'm getting is:

    Code:
    Could not write to "file:///C:/Documents and Settings/Matt/Mijn documenten/tr.ktr" because it is read-only.
    Crazy.

    I have Cygwin installed on my Windows XP laptop on which I had the problem.
    So I did a "chmod u+w ." in the home directory and now the problem is gone.

    Apparently, Windows flags the home directory as readonly and then figures that the current user will have access anyway.
    Strange reasoning. We might have to file a bug report for this one at Apache.

    Thanks Matt for your response. Normally we use a repository but I didn't want to upgrade our 2.4 repository at this time. I successfully saved to a different directory.
