Destination Folder: acces denied problem. Tried the fix in this forum but it still doesn't work

Post by chouchou on Sat 19 Sep 2015, 19:26

Hi,
so recently I started having problems with my Sims 4. I ended up downloading and reinstalling both the base game and the ultimate fix.
However, when I tried moving the Game folder to the original installation directory, I got the "Destination Folder: access denied" error; I followed the instructions in Carlos' tutorial posted in this same forum, I edited the folder permissions, but it still doesn't let me copy the Bin folder from the fix into the original Sims 4 directory.
Any suggestions as to what to try next? Thanks a bunch.

P.S.: http://games4theworld.bestgoo.com/t19603-destination-folder-access-denied-fix - that's the thread I'm talking about.

Hi! Sorry for my late reply. Did you figure things out? Are you using an account with administrative privileges?

If you still face the same issue, one option is to use the "move" command using an elevated admin command promt, which should have more privileges than using Windows Explorer. Or you can run Windows Explorer as Administrator (right click it on the start menu, then select "run as administrator"), and try again.

Let's know if you got things working. Happy simming!
