    Freezing apps due to no permission to write to Program Files


    Hi. This is an odd issue I've never seen before. Firstly, my Windows specs: This is after an in-place upgrade using Microsoft Media Creation Tool. I did the usual sfc /scannow and DSIM commands. I'm using 3D printing application such as Cura and Prusa and I find that with both applications I encounter the same problem, which leads me to believe this is a Windows issue rather then the applications fault. In this threat that I posted I complained about the app freezing. After having the app's dev guy looking into the issue, it seems that the problem is with Windows. If you've read that thread, you'd probably notice this post sticking out the most: As I mentioned, this issue currently only happens with 3D applications. They freeze for about 10 minutes but eventually they'll unfreeze. I don't have this problem with other applications. There's a weird side effect to this issue. When a 3D app is freezing and during that time if I delete a file or a folder unrelated to the app, Windows will not refresh the explorer view. It would look like the file is still there. I have to press F5 to see the fie is gone. In any case, I wonder if there's a 3D service or dependency in Windows that is causing this issue with 3D apps. I also tried ideaMaker and the issue happens with that app as well, so 3 out of 3 apps that are 3D apps are freezing. If I run them as Admin, they work, but I shouldn't run them as admin. I'd really appreciate if someone here can help me out. Thank you!

    :)

    App Permissions

    Hi Tony,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    Some apps require certain permissions to work properly. However, you can change the permissions given to the apps by following the below steps:

    1. Click on Start.
    2. Click on Settings and then click on Privacy.
    3. Under the App Permissions you can change the permissions which are assigned for the apps.


    However, you can go through the
    Microsoft Privacy Statement
    .

    Hope it helps.

  4. Freezing apps due to no permission to write to Program Files

    Unable to view transferred files due to permissions issue

    Hello,

    I understand the inconvenience you are facing in Windows regarding accessing the backup files. We will help you.

    How was the files backed up, using File history or Backup and Restore?

    This issue might have occurred due to lack of permissions set to the drive/ folder.

    I suggest you to follow the below steps to set provide permission of the folders to users and check if it helps.

    Steps to give permissions to the drive:


    • Right-click on the folder which you’re unable to access and select
      Properties.

    • Click on Security tab and under
      Group or user names
      click on Edit.

    • Click on Add and type
      Everyone.

    • Click on Check names and then click
      OK.

    • Select Everyone and under
      Allow
      select Full control and click on
      Apply and Click Ok.

    For reference go through the below article:

    "Access Denied" or other errors when you access or work with files and folders in Windows

    (Applies to Windows 10 as well)

    Hope it helps. Get back to us with an updated status of this issue for further assistance.
