I have installed Blender in Windows 10 pro and everything works fine until I try to load an image texture in Cycles.
I get the message
can not read image texture denied permission
I have two hard drives, one SSD and one normal. I install Blender on the SSD and the textures in one folder on the other disk.
I have tried to run Blender as administrator, to download it in .zip on the normal disk and open it without installing it, to load the texture saving it in "my images" but the failure continues.
I have loaded a .blend file with the packed textures and renders perfect. If I unpack the textures and load them, Blender reads them but in some objects it does not show them (the purple color of warning comes out).
The problem happens when I try to load from any other location. Textures do not have restriction permissions.
