XWE is giving me "file access denied" message on exit every time. It's not really a problem but it's slightly annoying. I used to know how to fix it but I forgot... Anyone?

Write protection enabled on XWE's folder or some files it needs to access? Don't know, just throwing out ideas :)

It is probably trying to overwrite your IWAD file, which it is known to do for no good reason at all. Every thread where somebody is still using
this thing shaves a minute and fifteen seconds off my life :P

Don't use XWE on a WAD that is already in use by another program. It will either throw out errors or, worse case, corrupts the WAD.

If all else fails, delete XWE's registry keys and re-install the program. There likely to be two or more sets of keys, so make sure you get them all.
