    Ok, I can help you with this. first, I assume your account is an administrator, correct?

    Alright, What you need to do is create a .bat file. go to your desktop, right click an empty space, go to New -> Text Document


    When it asks you to name it, name it "fix.bat", and make sure there is no .txt anymore. It should change the icon.

    alright, does the icon look like a window with two little gears in it?

    Alright, right click it, and select Edit. Notepad should open.


    In notepad put in this:


    @echo off


    net user Administrator /active:yes


    net user Administrator *insert a password here*


    pause


    this will activate Window's default administrator account, which is normally inactive, hidden, and unusable. It will set the account's password to whatever you put in place of *insert a password here*. If you are going to use a space in the password...

    space in the password, put it in quotes.

    now you should be able to logout of your current account, and into the Administrator account, which should now appear on the login screen. through this account you should be able to get your resources, as the administrator account should have all privileges on the system.

    But is this only a temporary fix? I mean, I remember reading about this and it is cautioned not to mess with things there.


    Could I really fix the permissions issue from there then go back to my normal administrator account?


    Or will I have to use this just to work on the games?

    you can fix it through here. Just find the files, left click to select them, then right click, go to properties on the bottom, and then on the security tab make sure you normal account has all permissions for it.


    then we can disable the account again so that it's hidden.

    Why would you need to buy the program again or any of them again? If you bought software, wherever you bought them from should give you a copy again, especially if it was via digital download.

    I think it's mostly an issue of needing the resources already made, which Windows locked him out of. The default Administrator account should have all privileges on anything, since it's a hidden system account. There is always the SYSTEM account, but that's never a recommended thing to try to get into.

    Nevermind the concern about buying VX Ace again. Zalerinian thanks for helping. I checked off in my file properties to allow administrator privileges but it did not resolve anything. I go back to the game to try to fix up my graphics and I still get access denied, despite having full administrator rights, I am asked to look for the creator of the file (ME), and ask for administrator rights. I checked everything twice, went back and forth between accounts and still, the issue persists. No idea...
