    Whenever Hammer tries to autosave my map, a little window pops up that reads (for the most part):

    Error saving file permission denied

    I am guessing that this has something to do with Windows 7 automatically blocking any program that attempts to change a file on the computer. So I would appreciate it if anybody showed me how to let Hammer autosave my map files.

    I'm running Win7 Home Premium and it's never happened to me. Are you the administrator? If not, try it on an administrator account. If that doesn't work, turn User Account Control down a bit.

    I think I finally fixed it. I am the Administrator on my machine. I think it had something to do with my Administration settings to for the HammerAutosave folder only being allowed to Read/Execute. I changed the settings to full control and it seems to have worked since then.
