I get this error whenever trying to open Anki Desktop. First I tried redownloading Anki multiple times, but I still got this message. I tried changing my folder so that it was not read only, unsuccessfully. Then I tried putting Anki into another folder which was not read-only, but it seems like all my folders are read-only. A friend (who successfully opened Anki in a read-only folder then sent me this link Windows permission problems - Frequently Asked Questions (seems like other people had the same problem too).
I tried out this code:
icacls Anki2 /grant ____:F /t
and received the message “successfully processed 2 files”
Still, I couldn’t open the App.
I further followed the instructions and told my antivirus program bitdefender to view Anki as an exception.
Finally, I wrote the following code and received the following message (the faqs instructions said I should copy and paste it):
Finally, maybe I should mention that I have been unable to access the “My Documents” folder in my PC for quite a while now. Trying to open it or to paste something into it always produces an error. Maybe this is somehow related?
