Since many years, I always used Geany IDE for code of all kind on either Windows or Linux and been very statisfied.
But then, I decided to use a more recent version and a strange issue appeared in the latest release version for Windows (currently 1.23.1, on Windows 7 Home Edition SP1). Whenever I try to save or create a new file in Desktop folder, and only this folder and subfolders so far, it fails with that error:
What I have tried:
- Create + Save files around the folder like AppData, .config, random folders on another drive, etc. (working as expected);
- Compare permissions between those emplacements to find nothing apparently different;
- Looking at Tools>Debug Messages (it says: "Could not find file 'C%3A%5CUsers%5Cusername%5CDesktop%5filename.ext'.", but it can actually read the file)
- Adding specifically a permission to user "Authentified Users";
Is there something I am missing here? Could it be an issue introduced in a recent version of Geany? Any workaround or idea about what could be wrong in my configuration? I was using version 0.21 if I remember correctly and this is the first time I ever encounter this issue. I also searched on many forums to find nothing related to this particular folder in Windows with Geany.
Any help is appreciated, thanks!
I came back to release version 0.21 and everything works as expected. There is apparently something different in the latest one that I can't get a grip on yet.
