I'm developing software on a Windows 7 machine, and struggling with the security permissions. Something I do quite often is to install our software from the installer to c:\program files and then change config files inside it using notepad.
If I try and save the file after doing this, it won't let me and prompts me to save it to another location.
My workaround is to drag and drop the file to the desktop, edit it there, then drag and drop it back, which is getting tedious. I am admin, so I do have permission to edit the file and save it back, yet something about the fact that is is in c:\Program Files is stopping me.
Is there a way around this, or do I have to change how I work?
