Permission issues when loading .gpx files in Global Mapper 18.2.0
Hello everyone! I have a rather specific problem that I couldn't solve via Google search so I hope there's someone on this subreddit who can help. Needless to say it would be much appreciated!
I have a problem loading gpx files in Global Mapper 18.2.0. Sadly, I don't use the software, my father does, but I will try to provide as much information as I can.
Some six months ago, he purchased a new laptop. He copied the folder where he keeps his workspace files, gpx files etc. from the old laptop to the new one. Now when he tries to open a gpx file contained in that folder, he gets the following message: Unable to load overlay filename.gpx. filename.gpx contains an incorrect path. filename.gpx does NOT exist. Do you have permission to write to folder containing the file?
Now, the first thing I did was make sure he has neccessary permissions for the folder, subfolders and files, as well as ownership. There's only one user on this new laptop. I tried running Global Mapper as the administrator as well, but nothing changed.
The only bit of success I had is when I opened the gpx file with another software called ExpertGPS, saved the file to a new location (Desktop) and tried opening it with Global Mapper. It works, but is not the solution to my problem, because as far as I can tell, all .gpx files contained in the original folder that was copied from the old laptop have the same isssue. And there are too many of them.
When I open the old .gpx file with ExpertGPS and save it under a new name, but in the same folder, I face the same issue in Global Mapper. I'm assuming it's permissions problem, but I'm not 100% sure if it's Windows 10 thing or Global Mapper thing.
Opening Global Mapper workspace files from the same folder causes no issues.
According to my father, he didn't have this problem before Windows got updated to this year's Creators Update, but I can't rely on this information.
Thanks for reading!
