When I try to save a Sketch to a different directory I get an error message.


C:\ProgramFiles(x86)\Ardunio\Sketches\Serial_LCD
You don't have permission to save in this location.
Contact the administrator to obtain permission.

Would you like to save in the K1PL-800 directory.  Yes  No



I am the Administrator. If I click yes it will save in the K1PL-800 directory. It does this with every sketch.

I can go and copy any Sketch from any directory to any directory in Windows.
Why do I need an Administrator in Ardunio

I'm assuming C:\ProgramFiles(x86)\Ardunio is a typo and you really meant C:\ProgramFiles(x86)\Arduino

Is C:\ProgramFiles(x86)\Arduino your Arduino IDE installation folder? If so, it's a very bad idea to save anything to that folder because it will all be lost whenever you install a new version of the Arduino IDE.
