Locations of Edited Maps Windows 7

Not sure if I'm posting this in the correct location. If not, can someone recommend a better place to ask my question?

After loading the game onto my W7 system, I used the Map Editor to change a few maps but was having problems with the script function (it kept crashing). I therefore altered my Map Editor program to work as an XP S2 program (in the incompatibilities tab). However, W7 has hidden the files I edited before I changed the compatibility. So now, even when I edit a map I previously edited, when I load the game it always/only recognizes the first map.

Ug, I'm not explaining this well. For some reason W7 hid the edited maps I made prior to changing the compatibility. I believe this has something to so with W7's dynamic file folder system. All I want at this point is to find and delete those hidden maps so I can play the new maps. Doing a "Search" only returns the new map files, but when I load the game, it only recognizes the old map files.

Thanks.

You can try your luck in Heroes of Might and Magic 5EditorH5MMods because i think it is a cache system of the maps. And yes i don't understan well

I do not know if it will help you, but in my case (Windows10) temporary game files are located in the location:
"C:Users-Mariusz-AppData-Local-VirtualStore-Program Files (x86)-Ubisoft-Heroes of Might and Magic V - Dzikie Hordy" (There are folders: bin, data, Editor, Maps, Profiles)
Search the disk including hidden folders.

Hello JagoBC,

I am running with Windows 10 and I have the same problem as you do - script editor within the Map Editor keeps crashing.

Maps are also saved in a "VirtualStore" folder just like Mario.

What I do is I open the map with Winrar and edit the script file using Notepad.

Hope this helps.

Right-click Editor short-cut icon and run as Administrator?


Background

Here's what I discovered a long time ago with Win7

1. When I made most of my maps, the issue you described did not exist.

2. Sometime after I increased the security but turning the UAC (user-account control) on and setting it to "recommended" and saw something similar to what you described...i.e. tiny locked-icons next to the map name.

3. To navigate this bit I found that if I made a map with (UAC) off = easy to see & reload but UAC-active = I experienced the same.

4. <imo> Later this stuff was made worse at some point by a Win-update and my solution was to always save my map to a flash-drive and work on later from the stick. No problems afterwards and + you have your many hours of hard work...Saved outside the machine.
