    Hello @World-Beyond

    Error 5: Access Denied :
    Giving permissions to the output directory to the NETWORK SERVICE account.
    Navigating to the folder using Explorer, right clicking, Properties, Security, and then assigning the correct permissions to the NETWORK SERVICE account.


    Right click on Service > Properties >Log On > log on as : Local System Account, check option to allow service to interact with.


    If above does not fix your problem, PLEASE Check the Event Viewer (specifically the 'Windows Logs > Application') for the real error message.

    Best Regards

    Run the Command Prompt as an administrator.

    Copy the command below, paste it into the command window and press ENTER:

    sc config WdiSystemHost start= demand

    Close the command window and restart the computer.
