Can't start the game - Log relocation failed [solved]

Post by Azurech »

Hi,

I tried to play the game via Steam (same error if I download it via the website) and I get the following error instantly when I try to start it.
  • I use Windows.
  • I don't have OneDrive activated.
---------------------------
Battle for Wesnoth
---------------------------
Log relocation failed.

Runtime error: Permission denied (13)
New log file path: C:\Users\XXX\Documents\My Games\Wesnoth1.14/logs/wesnoth-20180623-082828-10064.log
Old log file path: NUL

This may indicate an issue with your Wesnoth launch configuration. If the problem persists, contact the development team for technical support, including the full contents of this message (copy with CTRL+C).
---------------------------
OK
---------------------------
How can I solve this?
I have seen that my Documents directory is read-only.

It seems like it could be anti-virus causing it to be read-only as well.

Oh why I havn't thought about it :? Thought via Steam something like this doesn't happen.

Works now! Thanks
