    For some months I have tested MicroCap rel. 7 Demo and everything was right, but an anomaly often appears recently.
    When I perform a "Save" or "Save as" MicroCap doesn't save the project as ".cir" but as ".cir$$TEMP$$" as if the project
    were temporary.
    Can someone help me?

    Is there a corresponding .CIR file with this? Micro-Cap saves to the
    temporary extension first and then when the save is complete, it will
    rename over to the .CIR file. This is to prevent any loss if the
    computer happens to shut down such as with a blackout during the save
    operation. Haven't seen this happen before, but maybe a firewall or
    some anti-virus scheme is preventing Micro-Cap from doing the rename
    operation.

    Since you are just using the demo version, can you try downloading the
    Micro-Cap 8 demo version and see if it does it there? Something is
    preventing Micro-Cap from renaming the .cir$$TEMP$$ file to the normal
    ..cir extension. My guess is some security setting on your system. We
    just added an error check in the MC8 demo version to see if anything
    comes up.
