Possible Installation/Permissions Problem?
Submitted by Stuart on Monday, 15 March, 2010 - 00:04
Hi,

I just upgraded to a new Intel Core i7 machine running Windows7 64 bit and reinstalled jEdit.

However, although jEdit starts and runs, I find that if I open a file to edit and then make changes
I am unable to save the file, getting instead a

Cannot save: java.io.IOException Rename failed error.

Since there seems to nothing magical about the file itself (generated text from a Matlab program that can be opened in other text editors and the same behavior occurs when attempting to edit other
txt files), I am inclined to believe that I may have some time of permission error or User Account error going on here that may resulted from settings during my installation in the windows 7 environment.

Curiously, the file name when given is surrounded by # signs rather than the simple string in the error message.

ie:

C:\...\Morphometrics\Ves_iso.nts:
leads to
Cannot save: java.io.IOException: Rename failed: C:\...\Morphometrics\#Ves_iso.nts#save#

Not sure if this is a clue as to what might be failing, but it does suggest something odd that I don't understand that may be related to the problem.

Has anyone else experienced a similar problem and might someone be able to offer and explanation as to the possible nature of this problem and suggestions for a fix?

Thank you.

Stuart

You should disable "Global Options -> Saving & Backup -> Two-stage save".
