    Bat file problem. Windows Cannot Access the Specified Adress or File


    I have Windows 10 Home. Version 1703. 64 bit system and 8 GB RAM.

    I cant run any bat file as it gives me "Windows cannot access the path specified, you may lack additional permissions to open this item." Sometimes run as admin works. But, trying to set permissions does not help. I understand there must be a process in my system that has blocked access to run bat files.
    Here is my task list.

    If there is some setting within Windows 10 that can block BAT files then I don't know. Would like to know if there is such.
    What else I need to provide, please tell me.
    I would be very glad if someone would help solve this issue. I asked for help in microsoft support forum, they just gave me their standard solution link that did not help as I read that before.

    Hi, don't know if it will help, but it can't do any harm...

    Thanks, but did not help. Tried to do that option also in admin account. The action was successful but windows still can't access,

    Sometimes AV/smartscreen intervene, since bat is considered as dangerous as exe.
    Considering, that you are running Bitdefender, I would try disabling that one first.

    Protection shields for both BitDefender and the default Windows 10 turned off. No results.

    What is the path to your bat files? Are all your bat files in the same folder?
    Can you post one of the bat files that isn't working?

    They have various paths... For instance C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Sudden Strike 2 Gold/Suddenstrike II.bat I I installed in all three drives. No result.

    In that one, comment out the middle line, then try running it.
    Then try adding
    Dir ..

    as the second line and run that.

    That program that uses that bat file requires some five more such bats to run. I did not make it myself. As told you all bat files are blocked access no matter what is written in them. I have bat to exe program it has these example bats and all receive the error mentioned in first post.

    Ok, as you're not willing to try that and I have no more suggestions, I hope someone else can help.
    Otherwise my only other thuoght is you have a permissions problem, and might suggest's free cautious repair tool. However I'm not convinced there's enough clear evidence of that.

    Good luck!
