Well, since I have my X-Com games in a different than the default directory, as the readme file says, I have to edit the .ini file, right? The point is that, I don't really know where the SAVE GAME directory is! I know where the game directory is, so is there any folder I haven't found? Also, do you have to specifiy the save games folder or just the game's directory? :explode:

you just have to specify the directory where you installed the game to.
savegames are the folders GAME_1 - GAME_9

j'ordos is right, it only wants the main xcom directory, like:
c:\program files\micrprose\x-com collector's\ufo defense
or whatever. (though in that case you'd have to enter something like: c:\progra~1\microp~1\x-comc~1\ufodef~1\ for the dos program to understand the path....)

Once you have the game's main directory entered into the .ini file and you run the editor, it will display a list of all the saved games in that copy of the game.

I moved my save game from Xcom1 CE ver to Xcom1 DOS ver. Each time when i try to edit my save CW Editor displays this message:
[save path]\Game_X\Saveinfo.dat : Exec format error
In CE ver everything is ok so i think save isn't corrupted. Oh, and one more thing in both versions i have XcomUtil installed.
