I have this problem too and couldn't find any ideal fix for it. One suggestion was to go to My Documents\RCT3 folder, right-click it, choose 'properties' and make sure the 'Read Only' box was completely unticked. Same with the main game installation folder. But this didn't work for me. Mine was caused by me restoring my old savegames into the RCT3 folder.

A few people have reported the problem, but it doesn't seem to do any actual damage. The game still saves, rides are still unlocked etc. It's just a stupid nuisance having to keep clicking OK to the messages.

Glad you got yours sorted, fart-assed-flea.

My 'My Documents' folder isn't on a network, but it's not on drive C either. However, this is how I always used to run RCT3 - I just a hard disk crash so had to reinstall my games. Restoring my old games seems to have caused some glitch.

However... What you've said has given me a thought: My 'My Documents' folder is no longer on the drive it used to be when I used to play RCT3. Since my hard disk crash, the 'My Documents' folder has changed to a different drive letter and I wonder if THAT has made a difference... I'll try moving it back - see whether that makes a difference.

I am having the same problem "The file may be read-only, you may have insufficient access rights, or your hard-drive may be full" whenever I try to save my game.

I have enough disk space, I am running an administrator account.

"My Documents" are stored on the D:\ drive as opposed to the C:\ drive, what can I do? I've just spent 4 hours creating a roller coaster an I don't want to lose my progress.

I've already done that, it is registered with windows as the directory that holds "My Documents".

It's not possible nor advisable for me to change "My Documents" to the C:\ drive, I have masses of music so I don't have enough space on the C:\ drive for it to work.

Plus, if I had to reinstall windows or there was a problem with the C:\ drive I would lose all my work and other saved games.

When I try downloading updates using the program supplied, I get "Internet Error".

I just feel the need to reinforce the fact that my copy of the game is authentic, that I have all expansions installed also.
