    Permissions problem running some troubleshooters from Settings


    Hi, if I try to run some troubleshooters from Settings, I receive a permissions error.
    If I run the same troubleshooter from the Control Panel, it's fine.

    Example:
    Permissions problem running some troubleshooters from Settings-1.jpg

    Permissions problem running some troubleshooters from Settings-2.jpg

    msdt.exe is the process in question here, but I've seen the same happen with others.

    This started in 1709, and I recently upgraded to 1809- I hope that might resolve this, but no.

    It seems account specific, and does not happen in another account.

    Others have reported the same symptom:
    Windows 10 Troubleshoot cant run - Microsoft Community

    Windows 10 Troubleshooter - cannot access msdt.exe - Spiceworks

    I've yet to find a 'solved' report.

    Any suggestions? Thanks!

    Finally seems to have resolved itself. Perhaps just needed a restart or log off after re-registering Settings.

    Thanks anyway.
