Just for the record, I have been running denemo on a Windows 10 HP laptop since 2015 and never had problems with export of midi files.
(I've had other problems but Richard has solved all of them!)
Inability to export to certain directories sounds like a permissions problem (not one I have ever come across) in which the extension is perhaps rejected for some directories.
Very odd.

Yeah, well, I actually have Denemo installed in two machines already. The issue only happened in one of them. Maybe there is some small specific corrupted file in my Windows giving this problem. 

I think you are right, one isolated case is not enough to justify publishing a troubleshooting on that issue.

At least we found a workaround. While I do have two PCs, the oldest one has no sound at the moment (hardware problem), so I really needed Denemo to work on the new PC.

Currently I am writing scores everyday with Denemo!

If there is anything  I can do to help testing Denemo in the future let me know. =)

Livre de vírus.

Until more than one user reports this it wouldn't be wise to do that.
I've just run this latest version on an old Windows laptop and it saved
a MIDI file to the desktop just fine. I've also looked into the libsmf
code that does the saving and it is very straight forward opening the
file in "wb+" mode as a buffered file and doing a close on it, with
every call checked (unfortunately any error messages from libsmf are
inaccessible on that windows binary). So it is very strange indeed - it
is possible to run the Windows binary under a debugger, but very
technical. We will have to await any other users of Windows 10
reporting on the issue. (Or perhaps you can try another machine?)
Please report anything else strange that may turn up.
