Minetest fails to load."Permission Denied" bug

by GrandSnaffy » Sat Oct 01, 2016 21:32

So it seems that there isn't a Log.txt or something the Minetest folders, because whenever I try to start Minetest, it won't even open the window, just the console, and it errors the following:

ERROR[MAIN]: An unhandled exception occured: Failed to open log file debug.txt: Permission denied
ERROR[MAIN]: In thread id48:
ERROR[MAIN]:/home/stefan/ne-build/build/minetest_64/minetest/src/main.cpp:f6: main: A fatal error occured: Failed to open log file debug.txt: Permission denied
ERROR[Main]: Debug stacks:
ERROR[Main]: DEBUG STACK FOR THREAD 1d48:
ERROR[Main]: #0 main

This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way. Please contact the application's support team for more information.



I am using Minetest 0.4.14 (The stable build, no custom mods, nothing)
I legit just installed it.
And am using Windows 8.1, can anyone PLEASE help me?

Where did you install or extract Minetest?

It must not be installed or extracted to C://program files.
Install is somewhere else, such as C://games/Minetest or C://users/username/My Documents/Minetest

Try to move it to some are likely the "Downloads" Folder. The "debug.txt" should be auto-created there that there aren't any "denies". Or if the problem still continues, try to execute as an "Administrator", that should fix it then.
