Ok. I am following you. I realize that permissions inherited from the user make sense. However, having an application run with fewer permissions than the user is not a safety hazard in terms of security and my experience is that this can happen.

Another example (which is incidentally timely, and appropriate for this thread) is that permissions are an issue with certain virtual system accounts on which older versions of this program run. (The creation and deleting of jpgs is a new, unreleased, feature). I have isolated the old issue to something in the way permissions are granted to newer versus older users. The following code causes the application to crash for newer users only. The folder being searched (directoryInfo) is the Downloads folder for the user:

FileInfo[] fileInfos = directoryInfo.GetFiles("GeniusExport*.*", SearchOption.TopDirectoryOnly); // CAUSES CRASH ON VM

For all users, the user profile directory is a mapped drive. Perhaps directoryInfo resolves to something non-existent for newer users and perhaps I should test that; however this is a Windows 10 environment. I know for a fact that the people I have worked with who have this problem have a Downloads folder that is being used.
