I'm using the code exactly as was shown in my original post, with the
exception of the actual filename and extension which I made more
generic for the sake of example. Here is the code again as well:
ask file "Save project as:" with filter "MYFL file,*.myfl"
if it <> "" then
put it into tfile
put fld "save list" into tFiletoSave
put tFileToSave into url ("file:" & tfile & ".myfl")
exit to top
I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium with admin privileges and the UAC turned on.
