I am getting an error saying that there was an error writing a file. Is this a bug or am i missing something.

It's a "feature" of windows: when UAC is enabled in Windows 7/8, it doesn't allow the creation of new files inside of c:\program files (x86)\whatever after the initial program install time.

Easiest work-around is to install blitz3D in a different path, e.g. c:\blitz3D or c:\programming\blitz3D instead of in the default "program files" path.

just recently i experienced another cause of this error on my
windows xpx86 sp3, there was no "tmp" directory so i created
the dir inside the Blitz3D root dir and the error message was gone
it looks like the installer or ide / compiler is not creating that "tmp" dir
