    Hi everyone!

    I recently upgraded from v32 to v33 and I keep getting these messages saying "BUGoptions failed writing ini file - ...\Mods\Caveman2Cosmos\UserSettings\something.ini". I looked up the ini files and removed the Read-only attribute but I still get the errors every time I load or save a game. It's really annoying.

    Appreciate your help,
    Quaternion

    I did start the game as Administrator, but it still gives me the errors. I'm using Win7 64bit, so it asks me every time I write to the "Program Files (x86)" directory, maybe that's the problem.

    Edit: My bad, I created a shortcut directly to the .exe and now I could really run it as Administrator and this solved the problem. Thanks!

    It sounds like vanilla bug, or you didn't delete old version before installing new one.

    It means that you don't have write permission to the folder. You need to run Civ as administrator.

    Do a general google search on "how to run a program as an administrator in (fill in your windows version)" and you'll quickly get better details than I could give you.
