Unauthorized Access Error

Post#1 » Thu Sep 03, 2015 5:20 pm

Been following for a while, and finally have time to dedicate to playing often, but on my laptop I keep on getting this error:

Error starting: System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access to the path 'C:\Users\mobeirne\Documents\Warhammer
Age of Reckoning\WAR.exe' is denied.
at System.IO.__Error.WinIOError(Int32 errorCode, String maybeFullPath)
at System.IO.FileStream.Init(String path, FileMode mode, FileAccess access, Int32 rights, Boolean useRights,
FileShare share, Int32 bufferSize, FileOptions options, SECURITY_ATTRIBUTES secAttrs, String msgPath, Boolean
bFromProxy, Boolean useLongPath, Boolean checkHost)
at System.IO.FileStream..ctor(String path, FileMode mode, FileAccess access, FileShare share, Int32 bufferSize,
FileOptions options, String msgPath, Boolean bFromProxy)
at System.IO.FileStream..ctor(String path, FileMode mode)
at RoRLauncher.Client.patchExe()
at RoRLauncher.Client.Handle(PacketIn packet)

I've tried moving the folder to see if that was an issue and running it as admin, but neither of those work. Searching on the site only yielded one result, Here, which only mentioned being in read only which it is not. The laptop in question is a school given lap top, running Windows 8.

Uncheck read-only on the entire folder, this may catch some of the other files.

You may also need to whitelist war.exe, rorlauncher.exe in your antivirus, or the entire WAR folder.

Ah you make the folder read only, that seems to have done it, now getting that dedx9_34.dll is missing, I'll try reinstalling, or will just transfer the files from my PC, thanks for the help.

If dedx9_34.dll is missing, you should install DirectX 9.0c (you probably have too new version of DX). There should be download mirror somewhere at Microsoft website.

Are you on a new install of Windows? Not having DX9 installed can be an issue with Win8/10. You might be able to get it installed from this link. http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download ... px?id=8109

I installed the dx9 from the link but I'm still getting the error that it's missing from my computer. Does it have to be in a particular folder? K nvm I just downloaded d3dx9_34.dll by itslef and put it in the war folder and that worked.
