So I'm trying to set up Visual Studio in Windows 8 in order to use VB6.  The first step is to create a zero byte file named MSJAVA.DLL in c:\Windows.  I do this by opening u a blank file in Notepad and trying to save it.

It will absolutely not let me do this because I'm not an Administrator.  But I am!!!  I have 2 accounts that say "Administrator".  But when I click on change account type on the user, it says "Standard" and when I click on "Administrator" the save button greys out.

Try right clicking on notepad to open and run as administrator. This should hopefully grant you the permission needed to save the file.
Or you could create the file elsewhere, and then move it over to C:/Windows
