It stalls and says I may not have permission.  I'm running Windows 10.  How can I fix this?

Permission denied. Perhaps you do not have access to a directory or file system.

You can continue with the installation and attempt to repair the damaged files later, or you can cancel the installation.

Double check that you have read & write permissions on the X-Plane install. Can you copy any sort of file into the location with the permissions errors?  This could also be caused by installing the sim on external storage with one user account, then trying add/remove scenery with another.
