Renders cannot be written

I’m running a Nitro 5 laptop and Particle Illusion build date 2021-1-22. Regardless of what I do I get this non descriptive error message. "Cannot render, cannot be written. "

Intel(R) Core™ i5-9300H CPU @ 2.40GHz 2.40 GHz

Are you writing to a folder that 1) exists and 2) you know you have permission to write to? For instance, try saving to the Desktop or Documents folder.

Also try a very simple filename, such as “PI_test_render”

Well I feel foolish. Changing the path to my desktop worked perfect. I’ll have to figure out why the folder I originally used didn’t work but I’m in business. THANK YOU!
