Hi, I'm relatively new to ArtRage. I've got ArtRage Vitae bought at MS Store.

The problem is that I can't load neither Reference nor Tracing image. Every time I try to I get a popup window, saying You don't have permission to open this file.

The image is the photo from my phone sized down (to 1333x2000 pixels), and converted to png, stripped off all metadata and such. I am the owner of this image.
Tried to launch ArtRage as admin, changed the name of the image file. No luck.
What am I doing wrong here?

I searched the internet and this forum but couldn't find a similar topic much less a solution to it.

Thank you in advance!
