Hi everyone ,

ok so I apologize if this has been posted before , I did a search and I did not see anything , but then I may have over looked it.

I am trying to open my H& R Block 2010 to print some forms off for my daughter that she needs for Fasfa ..I had previously printed them had them in a file , went through one heck of a divorce and the file "magically" disappeared..which now brought me to tonight to print them ..and I get the error message...

No write permissions to directory .
(see WinFileWriterImpl::open())


I am lost , and now at my wits ends...I was able to open and print them two months ago .ugh

any help will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks once again , I apologize if this subject has been covered before.

I will move this to the XP forum in case you need more help.

If the designated program is installed, I would try taking ownership of the file.

Of course, it's possible that the file is damaged and unreadable but that should have produced a different error message, IMO.

I can't provide any more info than I've already Googled. If those links don't apply to your situation...I don't know what to tell you.

How about contacting Customer Support.

You're obviously not the only one to run into problems with that program.

As none of the solutions referred to in the links supplied have helped you, you might consider uninstalling the program, using Revo Uninstaller, rather than through add / remove.

See Post #3 by boopme at this link for instructions:

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic403338.html

Then reinstall the program and see if you can print the forms. (I assume they were only blanks to begin with).
