A required privilege is not held by the client when you try to create a file or folder on the c drive of Windows 8.

Do not turn UAC off from Windows 8 control panel.

Instead, go to registry and do the following:

  1. Press keys “Windows Key + R”, type regedit
  2. Locate HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System\EnableLUA
  3. Update the EnableLUA value to 0 (turn if off)
  4. Restart Windows.

 

Tested, works 🙂

Yet again, thanks Microsoft for a great OS!
