When gINT v8.2 starts I get an error message: Fatal Error - Path/File access error. 

Problem

When gINT starts I get an error message: Fatal Error - Path/File access error.  What to do?

Solution

This issue only applies to gINT 8.2

If an error displays upon opening, or if you find settings are not saved when using gINT:

  1. Create a new DEP exception as described in section 3 of Installing gINT 8.2 on Windows 7 (https://cdn.datgel.com/pdfs/HowTos/Installing_gINT_8.2_on_Windows_7_03.pdf). If a "gint8.exe" exception is already set, delete it and add a new one.
  2. Give the "Everyone" group full rights to these folders and all child folders and files, as described in section 4 of Installing gINT 8.2 on Windows 7 (https://cdn.datgel.com/pdfs/HowTos/Installing_gINT_8.2_on_Windows_7_03.pdf)
    1. For XP:
      1. C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Bentley
      2. C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Bentley
      3. C:\Program Files\Bentley
    2. For Win 7 and Vista:
      1. C:\Users\Public\Documents\Bentley
      2. C:\ProgramData\Bentley
      3. C:\Program Files\Bentley or C:\Program Files (x86)\Bentley
