I have installed the plugin for the locally installed WordPress (XAMPP on windows 8) and i am getting the message.

Please change the permissions of your wp-content directory to 755.
Alternatively, use the following command if you have shell or terminal access:
chmod 755 D:\xampplite\htdocs\skwatrangle/wp-content
Click here once this is complete, to verify this problem has been solved

I have changed the permissions, removed read-only and also used attrib dos command but unable to move ahead

please help

Hey Amit,

Sorry about that. The permissions under Windows are a bit trickier to deal with, and chmod isn’t very applicable there, sorry.

We’re actually changing the location of file storage in 1.0.1, which will be released soon. More info here:

Can you try running the latest beta install at

If you install that version, and visit “Masterplan” will receive instructions about how to to move the content folder to the correct place.

Let me know if that helps. Sorry about the trouble.
