    This is most likely a Windows error.
    Either

    a) Change your project directory to somewhere within your document,
    b) Run C::B as admin, or
    c) Disable UAC

    All of those seem like horrible ideas. I'd run Windows explorer as an admin and try to uncheck things like "read only" on the directory. Also make sure that nothing else is running, using that directory. Applications can lock it and prevent changes.

    There has to be a way, but I'm not the smartest when it comes to permissions. I generally don't ........ with it.

    Putting stuff in your document is a recommended solution. Unfortunately many programs do not understand that application data should not be put inside the program directory, which C::B seems to be doing.
    Sure, you can change the permissions of the file system, but that's usually a bad idea.

    Disabling UAC, in my opinion, is the best solution since it's broken, anyway. Programs don't ask for permissions, even Microsoft programs, and you can't do send-to programs from a non-elevated program to an elevated program, etc, etc.
