Cannot change the Zoneinfo file

I had problems with El Capitan and decided to run a permissions repair script to see if it solved the problem. It came with two executable files that can not be changed. I looked on my first mac and the same files were not executable. I have a great difficulty to try to correct the incorrect files or copy the right files the first mac to it. I tried Sudo Rm, Chmod, Chown root. All attempts have been thwarted. What else can I do other that Reinstall from scratch?

It's probably the new security SIP in El Capitan, which prevents make you these changes. You are right however that these files do not have x (execute) permission turned on.

You could wait 10.11.4 and see if she arranges otherwise you could temporarily cut off SIP to enable to fix now, or as you say erase and reinstall.

  • Cannot change the .fla file


    I'm trying to modify a .fla with flash cs3.

    When open it, the file does not play or watch as it should.

    Everything I do is change the links in the file (which I did easily), but the file isn't always look right.

    I had a developer friend to try it too, and he had the same problem.

    This is the site on a test url

    And this is a link to the actual .fla file that can be downloaded:

    It is perhaps because the file was made in one program other than flash?

    Thanks for your help.


    You are welcome.  Overall, I would say that the thing is without doubt possible to save her, although I can't promise anything.  Your should be able to remake the masks quite easily.  The buttons are still a mystery to me, do not have dug their very far.

  • Cannot change the .html file in dreamweaver?

    Why I can't change .html file in Dreamweaver CS 5.5 when it is not attached to a model?

    I've always been able to edit every other time that I open the file (since I built the site over two years ago).

    Now, whenever I try to edit it in Design view, no matter where I click in the file of the whole page gets a dark gray overlay and I can't get a cursor.

    I'm still able to modify the code directly, but I will not be restricted.

    The last thing I did last time I opened the file paste the Google Analytics code just before the < / head > tag. I did it to all the files on the site, but it's the only one that does not. I tried to get out of this code, but it makes no difference.

    I use a 6 month old Macbook pro.

    Can someone help me?

    In your stylesheet, you have-

    . Container {overflow: hidden; width: 100% ;}}

    .container2 {overflow: hidden; width: 646px; margin: 0 10px 0 0}

    Try right-clicking on the page in Design view, and then selecting view item > full and see if that helps.

  • Cannot change the .png files in Fireworks8 recorded in other graphic programs

    I've had several different people send me .png files saved in other graphics programs and they are not editable in Fireworks 8. Sometimes I can see the different layers and sometimes not but when I see the layers, when I click on the different parts, that they are highlighted but police data, color, etc. does not appear in the Inspector properties so I can't change it. The different layers are not locked. Is there something I need to enable/disable?

    Mac OS 10/04/11

    Fireworks 8

    PNG files created in other programs are not editable. They have been flattened. It is true, even if they have been saved layer by layer. Fireworks is unique in placing special data at the head of a PNG file which allows the document to remain fully editable. I'm not aware of any other graphic software that does the same thing.

    The host files are linked to the internet explore and this is why it must be very careful when you change them. And this is the reason why they were safe as to change.

  • Cannot change the name of the file in the file properties.

    Original title: Cannot change the file properties

    Any help at all would be great, if no additional information is needed let me know.
    Thank you

    This information is set when the file is created.  Windows has no native ability to change.  You need a third party program.  For example, see link below.  Note that I have no idea if it's any good or works in Windows 7.  Gives you the link just to get an example of what to look for.
