folder is read-only
For some purposes, WordSmith needs to save files e.g. lists of results you have made so that you can get at recent files again. To do this it needs a place where your network or operating system lets you save. Usually \wsmith6 is fine, but in some institutional settings the drive or folder may be "read-only". If you see this message, choose Folder Settings and select there a folder where you can write as well as read.
