Hi Everyone,

After trying Google search, GOG forums, and Origin forums, I decided to Verify/ Repair and noticed access denied error kept popping up. Long story short, I found out that it was something to do with Windows ransomware protection not allow access to the game.

Step #1:
Go to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Security > Open Windows Security.

Click on Virus & threat protection > Scroll down and click on Manage ransomware protection (screen1.png).

Step #2:
Click on Allow an app through Controlled folder access (screen2.png)

Step #3:
Click on Add an allowed app > Browse all apps (screen3.png).

Step #4:
Browse to the game EXE file (screen4.png).

Step #5
Finally, it should be displayed in the panel (screen5.png).

I'm hoping this works for the few that may have this issue.
