getting this error when trying to install filmic color management:

enter image description here

I looked inside my color management folder and saw there was filmic files all over: enter image description here

Any way it is downloaded but maybe not displaying or something? I followed this tutorial precisely: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4nYGJI0r2-0

    $\begingroup$ Where did you download filmic from? Filmic is not an addon in the traditional sense, it replaces the colormanagement folder entirely. See the github page if you have not yet, and follow the instructions there precisely. $\endgroup$ – Timaroberts Jul 3 '18 at 13:23

    $\begingroup$ Isn't Filmic part of default Blender now? IIRC, you don't have to install anything, just enable it in Color Management. $\endgroup$ – Nathan Jul 3 '18 at 15:41

Blender 2.79 is bundled with Filmic already. Just download that and use it, no need to install anything else.

The error is caused by Blender trying to write to a write-protected directory. You can solve that by changing the directory permissions or running Blender as admin, but you should probably do neither and just use 2.79.
