Permission Denied FAForever.exe.log :(

Postby Brutus » 20 May 2013, 20:51

Hi,

So got a weird problem. When starting FAF I get "Permission dennied on ...\FAForever.exe.log". I've tried reinstalling and searching the forums for answers but this seems to be a new thing? Though seems like a small issue.

I've attached a screenshot. There is no log file to report. Seems to be the one missing and causing the problem?

This happened after my computer was literally hijacked yesterday due to some virus I caught on some porn site possibly. I never had a worse virus. Couldn't do a thing but log into windows. Managed to get it removed. After that I got this problem. The only extraordinary thing from yesterday.

Would appreciate assistence. I wont be able not to play FAF today. I need it :shock:

That file should never be written unless the lobby can''t launch itself.

Reinstall.

Thanks, however I've already tried reinstalling. It didn't helped. I've even just reinstalled again and still the same. Any more ideas please?

Not really.

You can try running the lobby in admin mode so it can write the file and post it here.
