I have been playing Fortnite since Season 3, but never had any error related to the permissions to access game files. However, after the Season 5 update, I have been having issues in launching the game. Whenever I launch the game, the following error message appears:

I am not a computer specialist, so I can't seem to understand the type of error or how to solve it. If anyone knows the solution, please help. Thanks for the attention.

    Have you tried running the program as admin? (right click on it-> run as admin). – Dragonrage Jul 17 '18 at 15:48

3 methods I have used to solve this problem are

  • Run as admin (right click -> run as admin)
  • Restart your pc as occasionally files get locked by other processes and restarting can fix this.
  • Reinstall the program. Occasionally the update gets messed up for a variety of reasons, and the only way to fix is reinstalling the app or running a repair tool if they have one.
