    Hello all! I haven't been on this website in...wow--I don't care to say how long! :kaoswt2: However, I thought of starting up again and going back to one of my old game files. I downloaded RPG Maker VX Ace onto my new computer after purchasing it on Amazon.com--however, it won't open the game editors, only the playable game. So, I tried to open the program itself from the desktop icon, but it opens blank. It won't open any files and it won't create new ones.

    (What it looks like when I open it):

    (When I try to create a new document):

    So, I tried uninstalling and reinstalling it. Didn't work. I tried uninstalling it, coming to this website and downloading it fresh from here to install it (just in case Amazon's download file was corrupted), but still the same problem.

    Any ideas what might be causing this? (I'm sure it's some sort of simple user error~I hope~)
    Thanks so much for your time! :LZYcat:

    Where are you trying to create your new project? Not in Program Files. Also not in My Documents (as several of us have had those changed by windows updates), and not anywhere that syncs with an online source (as that is bound to corrupt your files sooner or later).

    Like shaz says where are you trying to save the project files?
    Windows will block you if you are trying to save in a protected folder like Program Files.
    To test this you can right click on the rpgmaker vx ace icon on your desktop and select run as administrator.

    Ah~ that seems to have worked~!

    Before, I was just doing as I always use to do and was trying to save it in the
    default folder. However, I just moved the game file to my desktop, and now
    it's opening!

    Thanks so much guys! I appreciate it. :kaoluv:

    Don't ever save projects in the folder where the engine itself is installed. No end of headaches there, either.
