ImageJ Unable to Update New Sites

I downloaded ImageJ but it is not allowing me to do site updates so I can view Slidebook files. IT says it is read only, but a friend downloaded the same thing and it worked fine. Any suggestions??

What operating system are you using?

You’re getting that error because adding / changing update sites involves changing some Fiji files. Make sure the Fiji you’re using is installed somewhere that your user account can create and write files.
