Make sure that you have set your permissions to 'Everyone" to the followign folder.








Alias will create files/folders here and should be created upon first launch.




The ALIAS_WORKENV overrides this location from the default to a custom path.  Again, you need to make sure that you have permissions to that path.


Personally, I would just delete the ALIAS_WORKENV as a test if you have set it.
