    Did you just load in a run time ?

    I had the same problem.

    I loaded in my V8 runtime and then opened up Alpha and i could not edit anything.

    What had happened is the run time install took over the V8 icon on my desk top so when i clicked to start Alpha it was starting the runtime version that you can not edit in.

    I had to go in and find a new start icon for V8 and drag it out to my desk top.


    Now both icons look the same so i moved one to the far right and one to the left so i now what is what.

    I wish they both had a different icon.

    If you did a new runtime install that might be the problem

    Rename the shortcut and then rightclick - properties and pick a different icon

    also - be sure you don't use that method for creating a shortcut to your application - instead create the shortcut from the controlpanel - tools
