QSO Error Attempt to write a read only database

Post by WA5FW » 17 Jan 2019, 18:04

I had not used Log40M for a few months and I tried to log some contacts in the last few days and I get a QSO Error Attempt to write a read only database. I copied and renamed the data base and that worked for that day and today I am getting the error again, with both old and new data bases. I am running windows 10 and ver 1.36.0.0

Looking for some help please,

Open Windows Explorer by pressing the Windows key + E on your keyboard.
Navigate to the location of the file you would like change attribut on.
Select and right-click the file, And then select Properties from the drop-down menu that appears.
Unhook the "read only" square.

Thanks LA9FFA, checked that and it is not turned on, open another file in that folder and was able to make changes and save them. The database file is in my document folder

Did you have installed Log4OM with administrator privileges ? Go to your Log4OM
program folder, search LogOMUI.exe and check it with a left Mouseklick. Use
the "Properties" menu item and in the the popup window check the "Compatibility"
tab. Check the box "Run as administrator" and save it. Then try again.
