Installed on separate drive, but no permissions

Post by roncli » 17 Apr 2016, 04:26

I installed Proving Grounds on a separate drive (my E: drive) to e:\Games\SCPG... however, I could not run the game from the start menu. After investigation, it appears that it didn't install with the correct Windows permissions, so Windows 10 thought I didn't have access to the directory.

Solution was to go into the properties of that directory, under the security tab, and giving myself ownership of the directory. After that, it worked fine.

Hey, thanks for the solution. Yes, if your folders inherit the permissions from the E: drive and those permissions don't include write access, then that could be a problem.

(Side note: it's unfortunate we can't change this behaviour to make it like other games which write to My Documents instead. But with UDK we don't have source code access.)
