I'm using version 17.12 and I can't create new projects. I tried from the 'create a project' on the start up screen and under file under new. It just says can't create new project. No error code given. I'm using Windows 10 on an HP notebook with a one terabyte drive, if that helps. I have no problems on my desktop computer. I can open existing projects on the laptop but not new projects. Please, any help would be appreciated.

PS. Why is the code:blocks manual version 10.5 (or whatever the number is) when you're up to 17.12?

Where are you trying to create the new projects? Some folders are protected in Windows 10, and there is also a protection against ransomware that prevents modifying files under My documents by "unknown" software. It is off by default, but may be you have it activated.

Are you using spaces, forbidden or non-ASCII characters in the projects's name?

Do you have a list of project templates in the dialog for new project creation?
