Windows 10, Finale v27

So, I followed the instructions at:
https://usermanuals.finalemusic.com/FinaleWin/Content/Finale/Default_document.htm?Highlight=DEFAULT%20DOCUMENT 
The last paragraph reads,

  • Choose File > Open; in the Open dialog box that appears, navigate to the Finale/Music Files/Default Files folder
  • Choose Finale Template File from the File Type drop-down list and double-click Maestro Font Default.FTMX file to open it. 
  • You’re now looking at a blank document. Make any changes to it you want. Change the lyric font, page size, add expressions, etc.. 
  • When you’re finished, choose File > Save, choose Finale Template File from the File Type drop-down list, 
  • Name the file Maestro Font Default.FTMX and then save it (and replace the existing Maestro Font Default file). 
  • From now on, every time you double-click the Finale program icon, choose File > New > Default Document or Document with Setup Wizard, a fresh, untitled copy of this Maestro Font Default file appears on the screen, formatted according to your preferences.

But when I attempt to save it I get two error messages:
and then

That's as far as I can go. What am I missing?
The only difference is that now with v27, the template is Finale Maestro Font Default.FTMX

Thank you!

Thank you, Mike

I read the article--the very last entry, by Andres--was the solution.

I opened Finale with "Run as Administrator" and also made the folder Read and Write.

That solved the problem.

Greatly appreciated,
:-)
