    Can´t save my games - No ´New Profile´ avaible at main menu

    Hello everybody,

    i have just installed BS:M Vers. 1.1.1 and can not save my games.
    When I opened the game there will be only the entries...

    "Play without saving" and "exit" at the main menu

    I can´t create a new profile, because there is no option for.

    My System:
    -IntelCore 2 Duo 2.2GHz
    -2.00 GB RAM
    -2x NVIDIA GeForce 8600 M GT (SLI)

    -Windows vista SP 1 32bit



    Can anyone help me...???

    Thanks for all

    Try to install BS:M on my PC with Win XP SP2 - it works!!!

    The problem with BS:M on my win vista notebook, doesn´t exist on my PC with win xp SP2!!! On that system I can create a profile and save my progress in the missions...

    So I think its really a problem with the folders on my vista book! But I don´t know, what it can be...

    The games on my notebook, wich have a savegame folder in their own gamefolder running clear and complete.

    I think the installed software (BS:M or FS 2004) can not create a savegame folder on my C:\Users\[username]\Documents\save games

    Thats the prob...

    But I don´t knwo how I can solve this problem

    I´ve just visit many forums (win, vista and so on), but I can´t find a solution.

    PLEASE HELP ME....I´m getting crazy


    Thanks for any answer...

    When you installed the game did you install it under admin or user?

    Are you able to create or save files/folders when not inside a game to that folder?

    Hey!

    I just would like to create the folder-history like win xp: (C:\Documents and settings\Own files\savegames In German: "Eigene Dateien") But this folder-system doesn´t exist on win vista...You could not create a folder on the system partition because win vista will instantly move that created folders in the documents folder of win vista!

    If you could understand a little bit of german language, read this...(It´s the same problem)

    http://board.vacc-sag.org/15/24298/

    It must be an option in the folder-administration of win vista, but I don´t know what the reason for.

    HELP!!!

    have you tried installing without customizing the file location?

    Did you ever get yours working? I'm having the exact same problem. I used the default install location.

    Vista-32bit SP1 fresh install
