Windows 7 memo save to file.

I am using delphi 2010.

I am trying to save the lines in a memo to c:\ but getting errors , Can not create file access is denied.
Is this a win 7 issue ?

If i remove the c:\ it saves to the apps folder.

Memo1.Lines.SaveToFile('c:\readme.txt');

How can i save the lines to where i want (ie c:\grant) ?

Does the directory GRANT exist?

You can't save to the root directory in Win7, it is read-only and protected by Windows.

uac is enabled

typically special locations like c:\, c:\program files\, c:\windows, c:\windows\system32 are protected then

if you run your program as admin, then it will work

why would you want to save to c:\ ?
