Not really a bug

Recommended Posts

When "Controlled Folder Access" of windows 10 defender is set to "on" it blocks the ability of Steel Beats to save new missions and edits to old ones.  Is there anything that can be done, besides turning that feature back off, to get around this?

Windows Defender Security Center -> Ransomware protection -> Allow an app through Controlled folder access

 

Add the SB executable there and that problem should be fixed.

Hi Rotar - I have the same problem as you know and I am running McAfee fire wall etc-  The SB Exec programme is on the list of approved apps for access - but I am wondering about the downloads, which go into a different drive - the c drive where my documents are rather than the D drive where the exec programme is installed.  Would this make any difference?  In addition, I have tried to find the Ransomeware protection in hte Security Centre and cannot find it - any pointers.  

 

Thank you for your information on the civilian random spawn - has worked a treat!!!

Having a program installed and running from a different drive than from where the Windows Documents folder (and thus the Steel Beasts user data folders) is located shouldn't be a problem, that's a very common thing to do. However, I don't have any experience with McAfee software. I do know that some antivirus and/or security software can cause all sorts of strange issues:

The ransomware protection feature is part of Windows 10 1803, so if you're running Windows 7 or an older release of 10 you won't have that feature and thus don't have to worry about it causing problems.
