Q - question

DGN import/export error - "You do not have permission to save to this location".

A - answer You do not have permission to save to this location. Contact your administrator to save to this location.

This error (during DGNIMPORT/DGNEXPORT) is caused by improper location of the DGN mapping and setup file DGNSETUPS.INI - Windws 7 and Windows Vista (UAC) protects files in root disk folders and in the folders Program Files and Windows. Or you have the file in another read-only directory. Direct this file rather to a read-write folder with user files - see OPTIONS > Files (the last item), or the variable DGNMAPPINGPATH.

The default location is in the subfolder Support in the folder defined by the ROAMABLEROOTPREFIX variable.
