Just open up elma and fill in nick, it'll create a state automatically.

Try to check if it's read only.

What Kopaka probably tries to say is that make sure you have write permissions for the directory where elma is installed. That really should be the problem, I can't think of anything else.

In Windows you can check it by navigating in your elma directory with explorer.exe and right click your elma directory, then choose properties and there should be read-only checkbox among other checkboxes.

In linux you could just open console window with root priviledges and type 'chown -R elmadirectory yourusename' and that makes you the owner of the elma directory.
