[Ifeffit] kind of solve the problem (can't save files)

Good afternoon Jaziel!

If it involves security, permissions, protection and all that jazz, try
right clicking on the executable (the Athena program) and then selecting
"Run as Administrator." See if it works. Sometimes if it involves
permissions issue this can be the case. Can you provide any further details
about these libraries you speak of? Specific error messages are very helpful
in helping diagnose the problem.

If it's on a shared computer, the system administrator might have frozen the
operating system drive *(i.e.* they don't want people changing anything, so
they prevent you from writing things to the C:), which might explain why you
can save to external devices.

Warm regards,
