This is most likely caused by you having insufficient permissions at the operating system level - if the code is on Linux or UNIX you may have to consult your system administrator.

Is the .egp file write-protected, or the code (.sas) files that are linked from the project?
If the first, copy the .egp into your user directory, and edit it there (and use that copy later on).
If the latter, embed the codes into the project, or do a "save as" to a location where you can write.

If this is a .sas file you need to edit, Unix has what some might call a flaw to work around this. Even though you don't have write permissions, you may be able to delete the file. So very carefully ...
Since you are now the creator of the file, you have full permissions for it.
