It sounds like your user account isn't allowed to mess around with the files you have to mess around with to make the editor work. You may have to ask your parents, or whoever is in control of the computer you use, to make the necessary changes for you, or to give you permission to do so.

I'm assuming you're using Windows Vista or later, and you installed your games to the Program Files folder. If so, then you needn't worry; starting with Vista, Windows is very paranoid as to what you can and cannot do with anything installed in Progrm Files, so it's just doing what it thinks is its job.

 

The best workaround I know of, which has been posted elsewhere (mainly in Tech Support), is simple: Create a folder dedicated to your games, either in your root directory, or on another drive on your computer. Then, reinstall all your games to this folder. Life will become much simpler. EDIT: Just make sure you back up any saved games you want to keep, plus all your preference files, just in case they disappear in the process.

I'm pretty sure there's also a preference option hidden away in a control panel somewhere that lifts the protection on the Program Files folder.

Possibly, but I seriously doubt it; remember, this is Windows we're talking about. The only thing I know of that would even come close to this would be at least temporarily disabling the UAC.

This is different to the UAC, I think.

 

You can modify permissions for each account on a per-folder basis, but I couldn't say if that gets around the Program Files problem because I only have an administrative account.

Just to prevent further troubles, DO NOT put any Spiderweb Games on Program files. Place them on the desktop, documents or somewhere else. I've also experienced that on BoA editor, about the "error code 11 out of memory".
