    Hello, everyone,

    I am running into a problem concerning writing permission rights, which prevent me from being able to save a new profile/create a new directory for it- I attached a screenshot of the error message.

    I am not a 100% sure but I do think that it might have something to do with the latest Windows 10 update.

    I tried different hard drives and locations and am running DisplayCAl in Admin mode on an Admin account. I also use the latest version of DisplayCAL.

    Help would be greatly appreciated!

    Hi,

    check permissions on the folder (right click -> properties -> security), you need at least read + write + list contents + modify rights for the authenticated user. Also, it is generally not a good idea to have folders directly in the root of your drive instead of your home folder, because they will by default inherit the permissions of the containing drive/folder (which might be restrictive for good reason).
