Bug Description

From the forums: http://mixxx.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=3568#p14008

Apparently Mixxx is trying to write to the program directory which is usually write-protected, despite what's in the .cfg file.

Changed in mixxx:
milestone: 1.10.1 → 1.11.0

This happens to me when I set the directory to be outside the music directory. This is highly desirable, especially for me, to avoid adding the recordings to the actual track library.

It seems the original commit for the user selectable recording folder feature was faulty. Should be fixed with lp:mixxx r3172
See lp:925663

Could someone please test with Windows?
