It's odd because for the "C:\Program Files (x86)\Garmin\Trainers" folder, under Properties->Security, CREATOR OWNER still has no access. But I'm not going to ask any questions.
A HUGE thank you, Jean-Luc. Hopefully it stays solved, and we help someone else who might have this same issue.
This is most likely what prevents your user account any access to this folder, therefore preventing the trainer running under your account credentials to access it too!
Probably a remnant of when you've installed 'as admin' or run 'as admin' once (which is different than running a program with admin user account for some specifics in the way Windows handles all things)
On our systems, there are 5 items all with 'Special permissions': CREATOR OWNER, SYSTEM, Administrators, Users, Truste
thank you for the information but like also mentioned in the aforementioned posts, can you confirm the correct files are found at these locations?
"BinPath"="C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Garmin\\Trainers\\" "DataPath"="C:\\ProgramData\\Garmin\\Trainers\\"
Files Related to BinPath: C:\Program Files (x86)\Garmin\Trainers\Packages\GTN\bin\GTN Simulator.exe C:\Program Files (x86)\Garmin\Trainers\Pack
