    Exclamation I cant save anything in PC2

    I can't save anything at Project Cars 2.
    Any options, new Driver info of career mod...
    All changes in my play are gone when I restart the game.
    I need support to fix this.

    the window 10 accounts must be English, but it was already English.
    and Added Exceptions to the Windows Firewall.
    but PC2 can't save anything now.

    Be sure that Steam has been installed with Administrator rights.

    Do you have your My Documents folder on another drive than your C:-drive, by any chance?

    I'm not sure if you can. I remember people having had the same problem, not sure if they ever fixed it without moving My Documents back to the C:-drive.

    Just a note, for those using McAfee Anti-Virus; there appears to have been a recent update that has caused it to attack multiple games. If you are having recent issues and you use McAfee A/V, you may need to add some exceptions for some of your games.

    You could try using symbolic links:
    https://www.maketecheasier.com/creat...nks-windows10/

    mklink /D "C:\Users\<USERNAME>\Documents" "<yourdocumentfolder on the other drive>(example D:\Documents)"

    That way Windows doesn't know better than it is on the C drive. It goes as far as if you copy the specified documents folder on C the resulting directory is real and not a symlink, same would go for file symlinks(remove the /D and specify a file instead of a directory for that) .

    After you run the command you should revert the my documents location to C for windows to see it, although.... The game might be fooled by there being a c:\<documents> available without you changing your Windows My Documents reference back to default.

    Before you could have Steam libraries on multiple drives this was the way to move some games to a faster or bigger drive without Steam knowing it.
