Could not create the specified Projects folder!

When creating a new Silk Performer project - SILK PERFORMER | FILE | NEW PROJECT, the project files are automatically written to the directory which has been specified within the Directories section of the System Settings - SILK PERFORMER | SETTINGS | WORKBENCH | DIRECTORIES (Projects).By default, the directory specified within this location, will be the 'My Documents' folder of the user account which launches the Silk Performer workbench:

This directory can be changed to an alternate location of the users choosing, however it is important to verify that the user account (which is creating the files) has access to the custom directory, i.e. Read/Write permissions. Should the user account contain insufficient permissions, a "Could not create the specified Projects folder!" error will be displayed when trying to create the Project within Silk Performer

To verify whether the user account contains the necessary permissions, perform a check by trying to create/save a text file to the desired location.
