It means that the MCGUI does not support saving the file.  You can, however,
save the file from the command mode of McIDAS (either the MCTEXT or MCGUI
Command Windows) by using the FRMSAVE command.

Yes, exactly.  I suggest you also advise your user to use FRMSAVE instead
of SVGIF as SVGIF has been removed from Unidata McIDAS-X 7.70 (not yet
released).  Also, the 7.70 version of FRMSAVE can save McIDAS frame contents
as PostScript (tm), so SVPS is going away also.

>If you could give me any suggestion, I would appreciate it.

You gave your user the correct information.

>Thank you for your help.

You are welcome.
