My windows 10 is 64 bit. It is installed in c:\Program Files\ActiveHome Pro. I didn't try running as Administrator, I'll do that. I've been using ActiveHome Pro for many years but recently the CM15A ActiveHome Pro USB went bad and I'm waiting for a replacement to arrive. I downloaded a new copy of the software and was trying to set on/off times for the recirculating water pump. It used to work very well but now I can't save the settings.

Ok that may be the problem C:\program files is for 32 bit C:\Program files(x86) is where it should have installed to on a 64 bit Windows.

ActiveHome Pro is installed in C:\Program files(x86). However, when I run the program as Administrator I'm able to save the settings.

Good to know, glad you got it to save.
You may wish to move the ActiveHome Pro folder to the root (C:\) as there are other issues with Win10 and applications run from Program Files (x86)  and it seems Microsoft adds more security to that folder with each new update.

Thank you very much for all your help! When I get my new CM15A, in the next day or two, if I have a problem I'll come back and seek your help.
Thanks again,
