How do I go about creating a directory and giving it full "read and write" privledges?

Thanks muchos.

Right-click an empty space in the folder you want to put it in and choose New--> Folder

Once created, right-click and choose Properties and then go to the security tab. Add the users you want with the appropriate permissions.

This hasn't changed from previous versions so is there more to your question?

Well, im sure if thier more to it,

but, this - I suppose - is more specific.

Error_loader_nocache - Unable to create cache directory.
Runescape was unable to find a suitable place to store its temporary files. To solve this please either:


Login to your computer as an 'administator' user, and then try loading RuneScape again. This should give it sufficient access to create its temporary cache.


Or, create a new directory called c:/rscache or /rscache. If possible, set that directory to have full read+write permissions so that all users can write to it. Runescape should then detect that directory and use it for its files.


If you are unable to do either of the above, then as a last resort you can tell RuneScape not to store any files on the harddisk. When entering the site and choosing between high-detail/low-detail also select 'Unsigned Applet Using Default Java' from the dropdown scroll at the bottom of the detail select page. You will need to do this everytime you load the game. The disadvantage of this is the game will load slower, so if possible use one of the top two solutions instead.

If problems persist then please refer to our technical FAQ which can be found in the FAQ section of our website.



I'm an admin, so I don't understand why I have this issue in the first place.

That should give you all the information you need. Just go to drive C, look for the folder "rscache", if it isn't there create it, then do the steps given by rapmaster above.

You used to be able to choose the applet which runescape used which is what the final paragraph is talking about. It looks like it's been replaced with "Safe Mode". If you can't get it to work, try enabling safe mode. I doubt you're alone with this problem though. File access on Vista can be annoying. Although I don't think you need to run runescape as an administrator...

Glad you got it working. In Vista you can also try right-clicking on the shortcut to the program and "Run As Administrator" to work around most compatibility problems. Not the best from a security point of view but it tends to work for old games/apps.

(In Vista, with the User Access Control feature - on by default - even if you are logged on with an account that is a member of the Administrators group, your admin access is stripped except for operations that you explicitly elevate through one of those "A program wants access to your computer" prompts that the Mac commercials make fun of. Really they aren't so bad once you get through your initial computer setup unless you have a lot of old apps.... Being a member of Administrators just means you can do these elevations without typing another password. A bit off-topic.)

totally off topic

but when you install a new game under vista always use : Run As Administrator this also applies to launching the game you just installed


sometimes registry settings need tobe applied ..

    Signatures can be edit in your account profile. As for the old stuffs, I'm thinking it's because Blizzard is now under Microsoft, and because of Microsoft Xbox going the way it is, it's dreadful.

    Crazy how much 3d printing has come in the last few years. Sad that it's not as easily modifiable though
  • Varine Varine:
    I bought an Ender 3 during the pandemic and tinkered with it all the time. Just bought a Sovol, not as easy. I'm trying to make it use a different nozzle because I have a fuck ton of Volcanos, and they use what is basically a modified volcano that is just a smidge longer, and almost every part on this thing needs to be redone to make it work
  • Varine Varine:
    Luckily I have a 3d printer for that, I guess. But it's ridiculous. The regular volcanos are 21mm, these Sovol versions are about 23.5mm
  • Varine Varine:
    So, 2.5mm longer. But the thing that measures the bed is about 1.5mm above the nozzle, so if I swap it with a volcano then I'm 1mm behind it. So cool, new bracket to swap that, but THEN the fan shroud to direct air at the part is ALSO going to be .5mm to low, and so I need to redo that, but by doing that it is a little bit off where it should be blowing and it's throwing it at the heating block instead of the part, and fuck man
  • Varine Varine:
    I didn't realize they designed this entire thing to NOT be modded. I would have just got a fucking Bambu if I knew that, the whole point was I could fuck with this. And no one else makes shit for Sovol so I have to go through them, and they have... interesting pricing models. So I have a new extruder altogether that I'm taking apart and going to just design a whole new one to use my nozzles. Dumb design.
  • Varine Varine:
    Can't just buy a new heatblock, you need to get a whole hotend - so block, heater cartridge, thermistor, heatbreak, and nozzle. And they put this fucking paste in there so I can't take the thermistor or cartridge out with any ease, that's 30 dollars. Or you can get the whole extrudor with the direct driver AND that heatblock for like 50, but you still can't get any of it to come apart
  • Varine Varine:
    Partsbuilt has individual parts I found but they're expensive. I think I can get bits swapped around and make this work with generic shit though
