Not Solved!

Cannot save Riven, running Windows 7, same problems as other posters. Disabled UAC. Saving through the top menu or with control keys is not possible.

Has anyone figured out how to save?

The question posed by the OP in this thread was "How do i Save and Exit ?" or in other words "How do i reach the game menu ?". The question wasn't "I know how i'm supposed to save but i can't do it due to some problem i'm having with the game, how do i fix this ?".

You should start a new thread of your own for the save problem, since this thread it's not about the save problem with Riven and the main thread on the saving issues subject was mistakenly marked as 'Solved' by the OP. You should also contact gog support if you haven't done so already.

For all you folks not able to save try this...

Right click the game icon on your desktop or wherever it is and select properties then select compatibility. Run the program as either windows xp service pack 3 or an earlier version of windows. If that doesnt work. Right click again then select test compatibility and play around with the settings.

This worked! For me the "magic" version was xp service pack 2
RIght click on the icon that loads Riven.

then click properties

Under properties , click Compatability

then Click run as windows XP mode

apply

and then click ok

can save now by holding down alternate and F key, save as what every you like just pick a name . and click open to see the fiile you saved tell me if this works for windows 7
