Can't install 1Password for Windows - Access denied to C:\Users\xxxxxx\AppData\Local\1password\data

Every time I try and install the latest version of 1Password I get the following error message on debug:

Tried running in Administrator mode but the same problem appears. Any ideas?

    Hi @patrickmorgan1984,

    Thanks for reporting this.

    Can you try this:

    1. Open Windows File Explorer and enter: %LOCALAPPDATA%\1Password
    2. Right-click in this directory to select Properties and go to General.
    3. In the General tab, go to the bottom to the Attributes section, uncheck the box next to Hidden and you'll get a confirm dialog, make sure it is set to Apply changes to this folder, subfolders, and files and press OK.

    See if 1Password works now.

  • Fixed! Thanks a lot @MikeT
