Ok so i just got a new laptop, with vista and so far love it! i am a huge Flight Simulator player so of course i went to install it on my new machine. I installed it and am loving it but i wanted to get back some of my other downloaded files from my old PC. I used a jump drive to transfer and everything worked great. Now though i need to edit a aircraft's configuration file in order to delete some planes that i had. I opened up the file using notepad, just like i did in Xp, i edited it, and then click save

now the problem occurs, it says " unable to save, check the file path" and when i look at the save style it says it trys to save it as a .TXT, not a .CFG file. I need to know how to edit and save .CFG files so that i can edit my flight simulator

any help is greatly apprciated!

Usually a .cfg file is just a text file with a different extension. Try saving it as a .cfg file (retyping the extension). If that doesn't work, then save it as a .txt - and rename it to .cfg once you get it on your desktop.

Ok i tried saving it as .txt, it said that it cannot do it because it cannot locate path, it then prompt me to save it in another location, i saved it as a .txt in documents.

when i went to documents it shows it is a .cfg file, i guess i will just have to do that!

thanks for the help!!!!!

Could it be that your jump drive is write protected?
