Runtime Error 5156

If you receive Runtime Error 5156 (or run time error 5156 ) when you've installed one of the 1-click products, there's an easy fix for it.

It's basically a permission error and, where the Desktop is concerned, there are certain restrictions around what you can and can't do. If you know what you're doing with Windows 10, you can modify the permissions on the desktop and enable access, etc., but that's beyond the scope of this article. The easy method is to do as I do in the video:

Remember though, everyone has a Documents folder, so never make the root/top level of 'Documents' folder itself a trusted location, only folders within it (and their subfolders).
