Required Permissions for Running GMetrix

There are certain permissions that GMetrix requires for the software to work properly. In general, it is best to run the program as an Administrator. However, we are aware that this is not always possible (such as in school or business settings). When setting up user permissions, please ensure that you add full read/write permissions to the following locations:

  • C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming
  • C:\Users\USERNAME\Documents
  • C:\ProgramData\GMetrixSMS4\GMetrixTemplates

Note: Additional permissions may be required based on your computer/network configuration.

This will allow GMetrix to copy the template files from the GMetrix programs folder to the Documents folder. Without these permissions, questions may not load properly.

To check the permissions on your computer.

  • Locate the folder in question.
  • Right Click on the folder and select properties.
  • Click the Security tab.
  • Your permissions will be listed there, organized by user.
