Error 5 means "access denied". It means that a file that the IDE tries to
use is marked read-only normally.

You could try deleting the file fp.dsk (I think that's the name of the
file in which fp saves the current desktop anyway) and if that doesn't
help, also fp.ini/fp.cfg (not sure of all these names, I don't have a
system with fp on handy). Most likely one of those files somehow got
corrupted. Note that this will reset all your preferences, so you may want
to backup them first.
