When attempting to save, load, or create a label design, the application throws one or both of the following errors:

M61426 You do not have the necessary permission to save the label in this location. Please contact your system administrator.

M11901 Unable to open template file. Cannot load label until problem is solved.


There are two potential causes for this error:

  • The user may not have permissions to the folder where the label or template folder is located. A set of standard Windows permissions is shown in the following table. Ideally, the user should have Full Control of the folder/files.

  • The application is unable to locate the corresponding template file or file location for the label in question, usually due to an incorrect template file path location. 


M61426 Error Solution
First, do the following to confirm the user has permissions to the folder where the label or template folder is located:
  1. Open a Windows file browser and navigate to the Loftware installation (by default this is C:\Program Files (x86)\Loftware Labeling\).
  2. Right-click on the Labels subfolder.
  3. Click Properties.
  4. Click the Security tab and select your account or user name.
  5. Verify the permissions for that account from the list shown.
  6. If the desired permissions are not set, click Edit to change them.
  7. If permission modification is not accessible or allowed, contact your IT or systems administrator for assistance.
