Unable to Edit Files on Windows 7

In some cases, you may want to manually edit files under your C:/Jaspersoft directory during or after installation. For security reasons, Windows 7 doesn't allow normal processes to change files in many folders including the Program Files folder, for instance. When you attempt to edit these files, you may see an error such as the following:

You don’t have permission to save in this location. Contact the administrator to obtain permission.

You can edit these files by running as administrator. For example, to edit these files with Notepad on Windows 7:

Click Start > All Programs > Accessories, right-click Notepad, and click Run as administrator.
