What does it mean to say that permissions are "intact"?
Whar are the permissions on that exact folder?
Just tried it and it runs when I select "run as administrator".
I don't follow your questions dj_paige?
Everything is checked allow except where it says special permissions. But special permissions is never checked. Not sure I follow your questions.
Would that location for temp be what LightRoom uses by default? Would not be pick, anyhow
Outside of LightRoom (LR), using your normal login, create a folder for the LR CACHE, preferably on an internal drive that is not C, go ahead and name it something like "Adobe LR CACHE" (Naming it temp is OK, but something more tailored to define it for LR just seems better)
Launch LR as admin, change location for CACHE files.
Now, hoping that changes CACHE file location for all users not just admin.
Close LR, relaunch as normal, cross fingers.
(Permissions) Same in my similar folder (that I do not actually use for LR, but) all but that last one checked.
Might, however, refer to a file or sub-folder with that folder. (log files for example)
First off I have not idea what location LR uses for default cache but I will look. I have included an screen shot of the prefs page in LR after starting as admin. As you can see, the location of the prefs file is not the location being reported where LR startup is trying to create temporary files so my uninformed hunch is that the startup issue has nothing to do with where prefs cache is being located. The location being reported that LR cannot create files is "c:\user/Papa/appdata/local/temp". The prefs cache location is "c:/users/papa/appdata/local/adobe/cameraraw/cache/". I don't understand why the cache location is cameraraw? Frankly, although I am not completely computer illiterate this is way over my head. I have used computer and even written relationalship databases since 1980 (I'm now retired at age 67. I know nothing to do with nothing but just to give some context to my experience) and I don't understand LR at all. I just use it but that might coming to end.
Someone from Adobe support was supposed to call me today at 3PM EST and it is now 4PM EST and I haven't heard a peep. I cannot even get through to the chat! I am just about through with ADobe. I wasn't keen about paying for a subscription in the first place I preferred a standalone application but I thought I'd give it try. Well the experiment has failed.

Might be a Windows issue, not an Adobe issue.
Have you considered creating another login account on your windows PC, logging into that account, and seeing how LR performs?
