I have a big mess. The game crashes 10-15 seconds after launch and steam says that it is missing file Privileges when trying to update / roll back to the stable UE4 version. The game files successfully validate though.
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Automation\WindowsNoEditor\AutomationGame\Content\Environments\PhotoScenes\Assets
Edit: the same error occurs with all these files/ folders.
Somehow, I can not view the contents of the above folder even if I try to open it as an admin. The Admin does not has privileges to modify the file privileges. Windows is unable to display the owner of the folder.
This is a personal computer with one storage drive and a single user with admin control. My anti virus is set to whitelist / ignore all steam files and all Automation files.
Note the Missing File Privileges as reason update paused
Error when try to open the problem folder normally
Note that it is unable to display the current owner
If the admin doe not have admin privileges, who does?
I am not sure where the error message directly below is from, maybe it will be helpful.
