No such thing as a dumb question.

I have tried to create V3 / V4 setup and bootstrapper projects.  They all will not save.  I can confirm that on  another PC the Toolset extension works fine.

On my problem PC all other templates/projects have worked fine till now.

The only thing I can think of is that the extension fails to get read/write access to some special place that this extension needs access to.

Sorry, I have a dumb question: Isn't version 4 pre-release / development ? The latest released (production) version of Wix is 3.11. We're using that with no problem.
