I am running Wireshark Version 1.12.10 (v1.12.10-0-g7f56a20 from master-1.12);

When I apply a profile I created I get this msg from Wireshark;

Can't open recent file "C:\Users\xxxxxx\AppData\Roaming\Wireshark\recent": Permission denied.

I have admon right on my laptop, I have checked my permissions to the recent file, tis looks good as well.

Any ideas?
