If you want to really dig into things and find out what is causing the issue, you can use the SysInternals Procmon tool:

You can filter the output to only show activity for the particular application and then look through the logs to find where a failure to write occurs. The application is most likely trying to create or change a file someplace where a regular user cannot. Depending on how it was installed and if you made changes to the default user profile, it may also be trying to write data to another user's profile folder.

On our academic image I had  that happen last year to Autocad.  The semester was starting so redoing the machines was not the best option.  I went to the exe and changed the compatibility settings

can't post picture.

open explorer and find the exe

right click on exe and choose properties

click on "change settings for all users" button

check "Run this program as an administrator"

apply and ok
