Sublime Text 2 Won't Save

I was using Sublime Text2 and all of a sudden it wouldn't save a file. I kept getting a permissioning error: "Can't save file 'x'. It took a little while, and a little aggravation, to figure out what happened. Windows 8 just went through another of it's forced upgrades and the admin rights for Sublime Text to write to the C:\inetpub folder was revoked.

The solution is to right click on the application and give yourself admin rights.

Problem solved.

Back to work.


  1. Wondering if you ran into the same issue recently in the past year. I have tried right-clicking on the app (Sublime Text 2) to Run as Administrator.

  2. this didn't work for me

  3. Thank You Mr even i was having the same issue with sublime text 2 ...your solution is worked greatly by mending it smoothly
