I have a great problem. I use the operating system Windows 8.1 in the 64-bit version. Since three weeks I working with FreeQDA. It's a freeware to encode qualitative data. Since yesterday I can not open my project file and the program creates by itself .log files with the following content:

!SESSION 2014-05-15 21:06:47.223 -----------------------------------------------
java.vendor=Oracle Corporation
BootLoader constants: OS=win32, ARCH=x86_64, WS=win32, NL=de_DE
Framework arguments: C:\Users\username\Desktop\project.fqd
Command-line arguments: -os win32 -ws win32 -arch x86_64 C:\Users\username\Desktop\project.fqd

!ENTRY org.eclipse.osgi 4 0 2014-05-15 21:06:48.395
!MESSAGE Application error
java.lang.IllegalStateException: The platform metadata area could not be written: C:\Windows\System32\workspace\.metadata. By default the platform writes its content
under the current working directory when the platform is launched. Use the -data parameter to specify a different content area for the platform.

I think there is a problem with the Eclipse-program but I have not experiences with this. I desperately need help and detailed instructions on what can I do, because this program are included really important data. Thank you so much for your help!

I do not run the program Eclipse alone, but it starts automatically with FreeQDA (the encoding program for my qualitative datas).
