I am trying to run CAT12 on the default ICBM152 template over a windows-based virtual machine. Trying to do so leads to the following error:
I am going to create a report of the issues I am running into while using this VM, and was wondering if you could expand on this error/how it can be resolved? It is simply a permissions issue related to my account?
The error message "Access is denied" is returned by Windows when Brainstorm tries using the command "mklink /D" to create a link from the SPM12 toolbox folder $HOME/.brainstorm/plugins/spm12/spm12/toolbox/cat12 to the CAT12 installation folder $HOME/.brainstorm/plugins/cat12/cat12.
This is most likely a problem of access rights of your user.
Access rights issues on Windows 7 or 10 are sometimes difficult to identify and fix...
Try running Matlab as administrator
Check the access rights of all the subfolders of the .brainstorm folder
Make sure your user has the rights to create symbolic links
If you can't figure out a solution:
Uninstall the CAT12 and SPM12 plugin from Brainstorm,
Download and install them manually on your computer (not in any of the Brainstorm folders), with CAT12 really located in the SPM12 toolbox folder,
