Change c++ template file

Post by emitlustful »

I want to change C:\Program Files\CodeLite\templates\projects\executable\main.cpp file but it always prompts "access is denied".

Is there a way I can change the default template file?

I think your computers security settings are set up (probably justly and correctly) to deny write access to system folders like C:\Program Files\...

Try this, When you open your favorite editor, instead of double clicking to open, right click and select 'Run as Administrator'

Hello, Eran. I don't know what are you talking about. I am just starting to learn programming. I don't know how to report a bug for CodeLite.

I think you can save a project as a template without modifying the ones that are installed with codelite in C:\program files\codelite\whatever

You can try, from the workspace view, select the workspace tab. Then select the project. right click->Save As Template...

Last time I tried this is worked except for not preserving the directory structure of the project. Meaning next time you create a project you'll have the option to use the new template.
