Hi there,

A friend sent to me her zipped file, but when I open it I receive the following error:

Cannot access: 'C/Users/Danie/AppData/Local/Temp/Temp1_Dark Fury v2 Copy.scriv.zip/Dark Fury v2 Copy/Dark Fury v2 Copy.scrivx'

File is not writable: Access is denied.
Auto-saves need write permission to your project.

Does anyone know what this means?

Thanks!
Danielle

It means you need to unzip the project first. Scrivener can't write inside a ZIP file.

Ah I thought I'd done that already.
That did it. Thanks! :D
