Re: *NO* version of Audacity works for me in Windows 10

I set those by going to the C:\Program Files (x86)\Audacity folder and right-clicking on the Audacity app. I guess I thought those permissions would extend to whatever directories the program was trying to access. Is that not the case, and if so, does it matter?
Thanks

Re: *NO* version of Audacity works for me in Windows 10

Thanks, The permissions I modified in the Security tab were (I made them all yes): Full Control Modify Read & Execute Read Write Then there was tab to go to "Special Permissions" but I clicked on that it brought up about three more screens I had no idea about. So I didn't do anything. It shouldn't n...

Re: *NO* version of Audacity works for me in Windows 10

Hey there, Well, I tried to do what the link you sent suggested, but OF COURSE, I cannot alter permissions in my stupid version of Windows - right-clicking the app in the Start menu does not bring up an "App settings" options, and going to the Start menu and right-clicking does not bring up an "Adva...

Re: *NO* version of Audacity works for me in Windows 10

Hi, nice idea. But in both cases it's Audacity 3.0.0 (presumably the same version).

Re: *NO* version of Audacity works for me in Windows 10

I have uninstalled and installed Audacity several times, most commonly logged in as "Brian" - I may have been logged in as the administrator a time or two, I'm not sure. As for security, I just use the standard packages that come with Windows 10. If there is a good third-party package that you think...

Re: *NO* version of Audacity works for me in Windows 10

Hi Steve, OK, I did steps 1-4, but when I try step 5, what happens is what always happens, I get the same old error screen and Audacity shuts down. I don't even get a Navigator tab to select the file for importing. As a side note, if from within Audacity, I use the keypress option for importing a fi...

Re: *NO* version of Audacity works for me in Windows 10

What triggers the crash is *from inside Audacity*, opening a project or importing a file, or saving a project or exporting a file, So I can't open anything I've done, or save any work I've done.

Thanks

Re: *NO* version of Audacity works for me in Windows 10

Hi, I want to thank you all for your patience in dealing with this. I uninstalled Wondershare, checked for viruses, rebooted, ran Audacity, and once again whenever I try to open a project*, import anything, save anything, or export anything, I get the same error message - although now the report is ...

Re: *NO* version of Audacity works for me in Windows 10

Thanks, well to respond to your questions: "Could it be you started using a network or cloud drive - they can cause havoc with Audacity." I have been using a network almost constantly with Audacity, well before these problems started popping up. "Are you having storage capacity issues - possibly usi...

Re: *NO* version of Audacity works for me in Windows 10

Hi, I did as you suggested:

Renamed ..AppData\Roaming\audacity to ..AppData\Roaming\audacitybackup
Went back into Audacity and observed exactly the same behavior.....

Aiyy - any other approaches to try?
