File not executable

I'm trying to add a script consisting of

C:P96Refresh 60
and saved the text file in WBStartup. Edited the information, added DONOTWAIT tooltype and ticked script.

Now it says:
File is not executable so I open up a shell and type:
protect C:P96Refresh rwed
Try it again and it works. But after I restart WinUAE it becomes unexecutable again. Is there something I'm doing wrong?

Would it not just be simpler just to put that right at the end of your user-startup rather than creating something to run from WBStartup?

Using Windows XP Pro 32bit. File system is NTFS. I use default Amikit installation with WinUAE 1.4.6
Disable UAEFSDB-Support is not ticked. Only settings I changed are added my 120gb Amiga HDD, and refresh every frame instead of every two.

Have you tried making iconx the default tool in the icon?

iconx is default of course

Problem is I cannot execute it from a shell either. I have to protect rwed it first. But it does not survive a reboot

Perhaps there is corrupted or read-only _UAEFSDB.___ in your Amiga C-directory? Try deleting it and restarting.

This worked! But why would UAEFSDB got corrupted? It is a fresh Amikit install.
