I'm having a problem with my RPG Maker XP free trial. I go to start a new project, and it says "failed to create folder". When I go to run in compatibility mode, it apparently creates a folder, but then says "failed to copy folder". Essentially, I can open the program but cannot begin any projects. Should I delete and re-install? I need some help guys and gals! Also, I'm running through Google Chrome and on Windows 8.

Try re-installing and running the program as an administrator.

Hey, Bret! I'm going to move this over to Game Development where it belongs. :) Maruno, if I messed up, you can come scold me later.

Also Mark, please do not mini-mod. Just report the thread and move on. The staff will handle it accordingly. Thanks!

I truly do not know. Try reinstalling it or running as administrator.

Failed to create folder?
It sounds like a permission problem, check if where you're making the folder is read-only or not (you can check it from proprieties).
