You are trying to save your user library to the “C:\Program Files” folder. Windows doesn’t allow this without administrator privileges that KiCad doesn’t normally have. Put your user libraries somewhere where your user has normal write privileges.


#3

It is safest to put custom symbols and footprints in your own directory
Something like:
C:\Users\yourname\kicad\symbols…
C:\Users\yourname\kicad\modules…

You can define some default configuration by editing kicad.pro. Windows also has something against.
Because of this I install whole KiCad not into “Program Files” but into defined by me other directory.
