You don't have write access to the file or folder.

Are you using the latest 2.3.2-210 here: http://www.pj64-emu.com/downloads/project64/binaries/ ?

Try copying the Project64 install folder to a folder you have full read/write permissions, and run it from there.

Thanks. I don't know why I didn't have write permissions (or the program didn't) especially since I am admin on my PC. I am using project64 2.3.

Because Microsoft is a bunch of pricks.... they deny write access to the Program Files folders by default to PROTECT you from yourself... lol
you can override this by changing permissions on those folders but its not easy...
