My classes and I are getting this error message after we go and "save a project as", target our desktops and click save


"an unamed file contains an incorrect path".


We click ok, and check our desktops.  No file is created.  If we close out A.M., then we get a message box, "Do you want to save to ...., and it list our project name.  We click 'Yes' and A.M. closes out.  We check our desktops and the file is now created.  Then, any work we do in A.M. will not save until we close out the program and it asks us again, 'do you want to save',  we click yes, A.M. shuts down.  We go check our files and see the updated time stamp, then relaunch A.M and our work is updated. 


Can anyone give us a fix to save with in A.M. while we are working and get rid of this error message?

That is really a strange one... what version exactly are you using and which version of Windows?

You could try to run A:M as Administrator (just to test it) and see if it is still the same, but I am not sure if that is really the problem.

Just to try... do Help>Reset Settings


This will set A:M back to its default state, so if you do this you will also have to reset any Options or Shortcuts you may have altered.
