So far for me, it's a short-term fix, it only last like 9 minutes.@DDasng1352 : I would then recommend to add the "write" right to the User account at that folder:
- Right-click on the folder (
C:/Program Files/Orbiteror what its name is);
- select the "Security" Tab;
- then click the "Edit..." button and confirm the windows UAC prompt;
- select the User account (something like "
Users (YOUR-LAPTOP\Users)") in the dialog that appeared;
- now tick the "Write" checkbox and confirm (you can click "Apply" before "OK" if you wish ).
P.S.: I hope I got the naming of the dialogs/buttons/entries right, as I am using a German locale Windows.
P.P.S: I used to have one folder under
C:/Program Files/Orbiter, that contained all my different Orbiter installations (like
C:/Program Files/Orbiter/D3D9Dev2016). That way you only have to give the write-right to that one folder (
C:/Program Files/Orbiter) and all subsequently added folders will automatically inherit the write-right in the future.
Giving the write-right for users to
C:/Program Filesfolder however is not recommended! It's after all a security feature.
