Check the properties of your savegames.

    When I was unable to save, it was because my savegames had mysteriously all become read-only files.

    (And check the properties of the directory as well.)

    I don't say that's the answer, but that's what happened to me. Worth trying, anyway.

Any slot?

    So if you try to save on a different slot, it won't work?

    I had a bit of weird issue earlier on when saving. What I usually do is I will have two save files. One I save outdoors (slot 1), the other inside a dungeon (slot 2).

    Well I had saved in town (New Sorpigal) and then saved inside Goblinwatch a short while later. When I went back to New Sorpigal and tried to save, it would save, but the new save didn't take. It still registered the 'old' save in New Sorpigal, before I went to Goblinwatch.

    I eventually had to go into my save file, delete slot one save. And when saving now on slot 1, it works fine and overwrites the previous save.

    Very odd.

    I bought a brand new ASUS gaming computer and I can not play the games I want to on it. I can play Oblivion on it (which I dearly love) but I really want to play my MM6-9. I installed mm6 and it will not save. the other games will install but not play. I am not like all of you guys with computers so it takes me awhile to understand things. Any help would be a great big Thank You!

    Yes, I am going to see Warcraft!!!! woooo

Okay. Let's try something else.

    There are a couple of threads below involving Sudo, who is recommending a Linux option. I'm no expert on computers, but that is something I've been seriously thinking about. My old computer, on which I've played these games very happily for over 15 years, is failing, and it's getting more and more difficult to run them under modern Windoze systems.

    I know no more about operating software than you do, but when he and Bones get a system sorted out, I'm going to piggyback on their knowledge so I can play the games again. I wouldn't mind being able to play some of the old MS-DOS games again, either I've not been able to play WoX for many a year.

When you install games in Win7 (and I assume Win 10) do you "run as administrator" the install programs?

    if auto install starts, cancel. In CD/DVD drive directory w/ install disk, right click on SETUP.EXE. Press "run as administrator". Hopefully will install and start.

did you install as adm?

    Games that install one way and run another, while using x86 program files cannot see the files.

    I always install old games outside of x86 folder so I do not have that issue. If you install as adm, but fail to use adm to run the game, the game cannot write to the x86 folder.

    It puts it in a common windows folder. If you bounce between adm and not you will only see any files written in the folder with the proper access.

    Adm exe will write to program x96, non adm will write to a common folder. I got burnt by that often in civ3. I sometimes ran as adm and other time failed to and was missing files.

    I finally made the shortcut have adm, so that stopped.
