    Windows Vista denies the permission to access a games app while opening it

    I have recently installed a games app into my PC running on Windows Vista and created a shortcut for it. When I try to open that app, I keep getting the error message “Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permission to access the item”. Is there any fix available for this problem?

    Right-click on the game app and wait until the pop-up menu appears on the screen. Choose ‘Properties’ option from that menu. You can then view the ‘Properties’ screen. Locate the ‘Advanced’ button from that screen. There is a ‘UNBLOCK’ button under that button. Make a single press on it. After that, try to launch the app again and check whether the issue still persists or not.
