Although you haven't found out what it is, I can just repeat: This looks,now even more than before, as if something on your computer blocks access to "C:\Users\Public\Documents\Lightworks\" for Lightworks.

I've never recommended working around such an error by trying to install as administrator. I don't know what installer you are using and it might be infected. If you are sure that it isn't infected, you can try on your own risk.

Thanks jwrl, there are many files skipped to complete the install

OK, well in that case I've pulled down that zip. I agree with hugly - it looks as if something is blocking the installer's access to those folders. However in the past I have installed as administrator both Lightworks and other software. I'm not convinced that will solve this issue, but by all means try it. I doubt whether you will break anything.

Just in case you want to check your installer: I downloaded the official 2020.1.1 installer for Windows 2 October 2020 and 5 minutes ago again, both show the following hashes:
