Weird 7.4 issue: unable to save new files
I updated to 7.4 this morning and found that I could not save any newly created file. Note: I’m working in folders I’ve been working in for more than a year, and nothing in the configurations have changed; this issue happens both on the server (Windows Server 2012 R2, through FTP and VPN/mapped network drive) and on my local machine. (Windows 10).
Open a file from yesterday, save: saves fine.
Copy a file from yesterday, rename it. Open, edit, saves fine.
Create a new text file in Windows explorer on local machine. Open, edit, save: “file may be protected, open in administrator mode?”
Create a new text file in Windows explorer on mapped drive. Open, edit, save: “file may be protected, open in administrator mode?”
Create a new text file using WinSCP. Download, edit, save: “file may be protected, open in administrator mode?”
When I do reopen in admin mode, I still can’t save the file.
When I downgraded to 7.3, the issue went away and I’m back to work as usual.
It is unlikely this is a Windows permissions issue: I’m able to work in the folders using Windows Notepad, Libreoffice, Gimp, Inkscape, and of course Notepad++ 7.3.

@donho I installed notepad++ 7.4 64-bit on a new work laptop today, and was encountering same behavior as @William-Morris with a newly-created .txt file on my Windows 10 desktop: “file may be protected, open in administrator mode?”.
I tried your binary file above, and the problem is resolved: the .txt file saves successfully.
I would like to report that I have also run into the described issue.
However, using the binary posted by @donho has fixed it for me.
I encounter the same problem with notepad++ 7.4
Hello is it possible to fix this problem also in 32 bit version?

@AngryGamer Problem in interface between the chair and the keyboard fixed with 7.4.1… :-) Many thanks… Have been blind to not see, that 7.4.1 is out…
I can’t save in v7.5.1 (32-bit). What should I do? V7.4.1 isn’t available anymore: https://notepad-plus-plus.org/download/all-versions.html
https://notepad-plus-plus.org/download/v7.4.2.html is still available, but
7.5.1 also contains the fixes of the previous releases. So your issue is probably a new issue yet unknown issue. Under https://notepad-plus-plus.org/community/topic/14392/just-another-ordinary-release-7-5-1 there seems to be no such problem report. So you could try to add a more complete description of the problem in that thread or report it at https://github.com/notepad-plus-plus/notepad-plus-plus/issues
