error 5: access denied
« on: December 19, 2017, 06:21:44 AM »
Hi
I'm getting the error 5: access denied message every time I try to do anything in BeerSmith 2.  If I close it down I get "Error while saving table: tools."  If I close this, I get: "Error while saving table: Advanced Search" .... then "setting", then "notes" .. etc. going through all the plugins.  I've gone through all the comparability setting to try to resolve it but no joy.  It used to work just fine.  This is the first time I've opened the program in a month or so and the problem popped up.

So I just found the answer to this problem on my machine at least,
and its that my anti-virus was preventing Beersmith2 from making changes to Beersmith2.
You should just need to whitelist the program in your antivirus so it can make changes to itself.
