The Windows Defender Controlled Folder Access feature of Windows 10 blocks Lightworks, see below from other threads on the forum,

This summarizes the findings about 'Internal Error A001 with V14.5 and adds a procedure how to fix:

On Windows 10, the problem can be caused by 'Controlled Folder Access of Defender Ativiurs'. When searching the net, one can find that it has been introduced with 'Windows 10 build 16232' and it blocks access to folders, and not only installation folders, for applications that are not recognized as Windows Certified Applications. This function is pretty much useless, because multiple methods are know to bypass Controlled Folder Access which can be used by malware.

Lightworks isn't malware.

To allow installation and for proper operations afterwards, try this procedure with Win10:

1. Select "Start>>Settings>>Update & Security>>Windows Security>>Virus & threat protection"
2. Under "Virus & threat protection settings", select "Manage settings".
3. Under "Controlled folder access", select Manage "Controlled folder access".
4. Switch the "Controlled folder access" setting to "Off".
