How to enable full read/write permissions

  • Live Versions: All
  • Operating System: All

Live requires full read/write access to certain folders on your computer otherwise you may get error messages like "The folder cannot be created" or "The file cannot be created" while using Live.

Windows

See this third party article on how to take ownership of files/folders and allow Read/Write access on Windows. In case your entire account has read only access, it might be easier to set up a new user account instead.

Mac

See this article from Apple about how to set permissions for items on your Mac. In case all files and folders on your profile need to be modified, it might be easier to set up a new user profile instead.
