Odd error when trying to save or create new project

I had to restore Scrivener 3 for Windows after a hard drive fail. When I check, it is “up to date.” I have a folder for my scrivener projects. When I try to save a project, I receive this error message, attached.

You cannot save a Project in a. scriv folder. You’re probably not doing that on purpose. I would try to File > Save as… And point to a different folder.

I hope you haven’t installed the entire program in a . scriv folder. Then uninstall and reinstall in the Programs folder.
