I created a console app.  I'm trying to test it.  When I run it I get "Access is Denied."  Do not know why.  I am an administrator on my personal computer.

Any ideas?

Does it actually start?
What does it attempt to do when it is starting?
Have you tried the 'run as administrator' option from the context menu when you right click on the exe?

you are surely trying to access a resource (network drive or something else) that is not available. On which line of code do you have the error? You will need to trace your application to find out.

I don't have a line of code.  I am running it from the command line and I am receiving an "access denied".  Right now I'm just writing a simple console app and will expand on it.  Like a Hello World for an example.  I'm testing passing parameters into it.  

Just wanted to write the parameters out before I went further in the code.  When I went to test it I received the "Access Denied" from the command prompt.  I'm glad I found this issue now before I went further with the development.

>>I don't have a line of code.

So it is basically the following:
Main()
{
}

And to repeat myself:

Does it actually start?
What does it attempt to do when it is starting?
Have you tried the 'run as administrator' option from the context menu when you right click on the exe?

The first two seemed to be answered by no and absolutely nothing but what about the third?

Does it actually start?
-  No.  Nothing is happening.  

What does it attempt to do when starting?
-  It's a simple code.  I am getting the string[] args and just doing a Console.WriteLine.  That is all at the moment.

Have you tried the 'run as administrator'....
I set the "Run as administrator" after right clicking on the EXE and it's still "Access Denied".

The one thing I did differently was run vsvars32.bat prior to doing anything.  I wrote a simple Hello World Winform and that won't open from the EXE.  I can run it in .NET but it is not running when I go to the bin directory and double click on the EXE..

I'm using VS 2015.

I rebooted my computer and it seems to be working.  Weird.  Thanks.

Rebooting seems to have solved the issue.
