The folders under Program Files are locked files under Windows 10 (and
Windows 8 and ...).
Suggest you put it somewhere else on the computer, create a folder for
your own code, and get used to using Source Code Aliases ... this is how
the dUFLP works, and it works great. I also for my own apps have folders
for sets of code, again using Source Code Aliases, and they work fine.
But they are not stored under the Program Files folder structure in
The first chapters of The dBASE Book go into a huge amount of detail
about this kind of thing ...
