Access Denied when extracting plugins in PSP2018

Postby Faye » Sat Aug 25, 2018 5:54 pm

Hi I am new here and looking for help.
I am running Windows 10 and I use PSP2018 64 bit.
When extracting a plugin from WinZip to the plugin folder of PSP2018 I get Access Denied. That administrative privileges may be required.. :?:
I am the administrator..Yes it is set up that way on my computer.
Does anyone know why or can help me with this. :?:
Thank you
Faye

Starting with Windows 8 administrators all have common user privileges and anything requiring full admin privileges needs to be promoted. It's a security feature to prevent programs running undetected from running with full admin privileges and potentially damaging your systems. If you right-cllick on winzip and use "Run As Administrator" then you should be able to copy to any folder.

The best way, however, would be to create a plugins folder all your own, say in your Documents folder, and add it to the file locations inside PSP.

I had a similar problem with PSP 2018. I solved it as follows:

Went to 'File > Preferences > File Locations... Plug-ins.' Edited Look-In directory from '.../PlugIns/EN' to '/PlugIns.' Now you should be able to find plugins.
PS from 3, PSP from 1; PSP7, 9, 11, x4, x6, x7, x8, x9 installed; now using PSP 2018 (20.2.0.1 x64) on Win7-64; rejected PSP 2019.

Thank you for this answer. I was trying to add them directly into the program in the plugin folder. I do know the way you told me about. Sometimes the plugins will not work by doing that. Thank you again. I am very appreciate that you took the time to help me.
