Access Denied Launching ROES

  • When launching ROES an error message appears saying
    access to path C:\ProgramData\SWROES\LaunchLog.txt is denied
  • Access denied to a .txt file in the folder C:\ProgramData\SWRoes, it is likely that an antivirus software has revoked full privileges to folders within C:\ProgramData\
