Hello all,

Since I have installed Windows10 on my new computer, I get this error message when I leave GEM+ 2 :

Path/File access error in UpdateExe


It seems GEM+ tried to delete gplc67 (or gplc66, gplc55 ...) to create a new version but it can't do it due to lack of access rights.

When I reboot my computer, everything is OK.

I tried to start GEM+2 as administrator but nothing change.

I searched on GPL forums but found nothing related.

Any idea ?

Thanks

Make certain that GPL and GEM+ are not installed to either the Program Files or Program Files (x86) system folders.

GEM+ is on C:/GPLsecrets
and
GPL.exe is on C:/Sierra

I don't know if it matters to the operation of GEM+, but I have them installed like this:

C:\Sierra\GPL\gpl.exe (and other mods such as gplc67.exe, gplc65.exe, gplm71.exe, etc)

C:\Sierra\GPLSecrets\GEM+\GEMP2.exe

Yes, it is exactly the same for me.

I know Windows 10 access rights are different than previous Win7 or XP ...but I don't know what to do :huh:

A lot of people are running GPL with Win10, so it should be easy to solve ...but I have no idea how to do it.

Make sure your virus checker and firewall have all GPL files listed as exceptions.

I run GEM+ fine with Windows 10.  From my experience I don't think the folder you run it from is your issue. But then who knows with Windows 10.

Fyi - My GPL install is in e:\Grand Prix Legends\GPL.

Originally I had GEM+ in e:\Grand Prix Legends\GPLSecrets.  With the "run as administrator" set in the exe's properties.  This worked fine, but at start up I would always get the User Access Control prompt "Do you want this App from an unknown publisher to make changes to your computer? Yes/No".

I tried copying the whole GPLSecrets folder into C:\Program Files (x86).  I didn't install anything (true for my whole GPL install as I have just copied it from computer to computer over the years, long since ditching the Sierra folder).
This runs fine without the USer Access Control prompt. Which I do still get for GPL Setup Manager which also resides in the GPLSecrets folder.
