Unity Standalone build always fails

I am having a serious problem with Unity. I decided to start working with it 2 days ago and everything went fine until I wanted to build & run a simple game I created. The "game" is basically just composed of a scene with a terrain, a cube, the included Constructor model in Unity, and a script I wrote to make the model go to where I click my mouse on the terrain.
But these are all irrelevant details. Inside of Unity, I can press the play button and everything works wonderful. I can build a web player and it works great. However when I go ahead and try to build the "game" into a standalone executable Unity gives me an error (posted below). I have tried everything suggested - including creating a new project, all to no avail. Also, the executable inside the StagingArea directory works good.

Thats a bit odd, normally there shouldn't be any problems writing to the user directory in Windows.

a few things you can check though:

1) That you are logged in as "David"
2) That the folder C:/Users/David/Unity/Game\Game_Data exists and isn't write protected. (if the folder doesn't exist you can check the permissions on the Game and Unity folders to make sure they're not write protected either) Edited by SimonForsman

1) Yeah, David that's me!
2) Ok, so the folder did not exist - so that must be the problem. I am guessing Unity can't write to the folder?
I checked right now, and the permissions on the Game folder stated Read Only (only applies to files in folder), so I removed that and it still didn't work. [img]http://public.gamedev.net//public/style_emoticons/default/sad.png[/img] Edited by wiz3kid

Have you tried restarting unity and/or rebooting your system ?

I restarted Unity a dozen of times. I turned my machine off this morning, and turned it back on in the afternoon, so that didn't help I guess... (unless you think I should restart again?)
BTW, I am running the 30-day pro-trial.

hmm, You could try creating a new project using a different folder and re-import your assets/scripts and see if this helps, (I'm running out of ideas)

The owner of the folder was set to Administrator instead of my name (perhaps because I launched Unity as administrator when I created the game), so I changed the owner to me, and it still does not work. I don't know what else to do! [img]http://public.gamedev.net//public/style_emoticons/default/unsure.png[/img] I really want to be able to do this right. Having to constantly interrupt my development in order to launch the file from Explorer really slows me down... [img]http://public.gamedev.net//public/style_emoticons/default/sad.png[/img]

Firstly, try removing the temp folder (back it up/copy it first if you're worried about data loss!) from your assets folder and re-starting Unity -- I've heard a number of times that similar problems have been solved that way. If it's still not working try the following:[list=1]
[*]Save any other work you're doing, and close all un-needed programs. You can keep a web-browser open with these instructions, as long as you don't have any Unity-related web-players or the like open. For best results, start from a fresh re-start of your machine.
[*]Open task manager (press Ctrl + Shift + Escape, [b]-or-[/b] press Ctrl + Alt + Del and choose "start task manager" from the menu).
[*]If you have Unity currently running, close it. After waiting a moment, ensure there aren't any copies still running in task manager.
[*]On the "processes" tab of task manager, look for and close any processes that look like the following: "[i]x:\Windows\Explorer.exe /factory,{guid} -Embedding[/i]"
[list]
[*][b]Note:[/b] to do the above you need to enable the "command line" column in View > Select Columns.

[/list]
[/list]
[list]
[*]Ensure you don't have any files from the _Data folder open in any program.
[*]Re-start Unity, and perform a build in an empty directory.
Let us know if that helps at all! I had these instructions saved in a document after experiencing a similar problem a while back and piecing it together from a couple of different sources online -- hopefully it works for you as well!

2. The _Data folder does not ever exist.

      FES Retro Game Framework is now available on the Unity Asset Store for your kind consideration!
      FES was born when I set out to start a retro pixel game project. I was looking around for an engine to try next. I tried a number of things, from GameMaker, to Fantasy Consoles, to MonoGame and Godot and then ended up back at Unity. Unity is just unbeatable in it's cross-platform support, and ease of deployment, but it sure as heck gets in the way of proper retro pixel games!
      So I poured over the Unity pipeline and found the lowest levels I could tie into and bring up a new retro game engine inside of Unity, but with a completely different source-code-only, classic game-loop retro blitting and bleeping API. Months of polishing and tweaking later I ended up with FES.
      Some FES features:
      Pixel perfect rendering RGB and Indexed color mode, with palette swapping support Primitive shape rendering, lines, rectangles, ellipses, pixels Multi-layered tilemaps with TMX file support Offscreen rendering Text rendering, with text alignment, overflow settings, and custom pixel font support Clipping Sound and Music APIs Simplified Input handling Wide pixel support (think Atari 2600) Post processing and transition effects, such as scanlines, screen wipes, screen shake, fade, pixelate and more Deploy to all Unity supported platforms I've put in lots of hours into a very detail documentation, you can flip through it here to get an better glimpse at the features and general overview: http://www.pixeltrollgames.com/fes/docs/index.html
      FES is carefully designed and well optimized (see live stress test demo below). Internally it uses batching, it chunks tilemaps, is careful about memory allocations, and tries to be smart about any heavy operations.
      Please have a quick look at the screenshots and live demos below and let me know what you think! I'd love to hear some opinions, feedback and questions!
      I hope I've tickled your retro feels!

      Yasss!!! My first Unity3d game is on the App Store and Google Play.
      Download please! About 30 minutes to get through 5 missions.
      Let me know what you guys think.
      Thanks a bunch

      well, i have started developing games last year, alone , I made a singleplayer 3d openworld rpg on unity you can look at it on googleplaystore ( kooru stone rpg ) whatever, this year, i wanted to make mmo, which gone really fine until I first try real hosting, I was working on "wamp" until then. The reason i am desperate now is that the way my game works.
      On my pc, using wamp mysql , with localhost as host for my game, i was testing my mmorpg with using andorid emulators, ofcourse no lag no issues no restrictions, beautiful dream... But then, I wanted to get real host from web, so, I rent a basic, cheaphest ever web host ( 10$ year ), and transferred my php files along with sql database. 
      So, I launched the game, still no issues, tried to handle 2-3 players by using my pc, phone, friend's phone...  
      After a while, ( after really short time (3-4mins)) host started not to respond, beacause those web hosting were not fit to handle mmos, i predicted that.
      now what i am explaining is that my game works like this and asking what way should i use to handle it :
      - Creates web request ( like : webhost.com/game/getplayerdata.php?ID=2 )
      -Reads request ( request result be like = "ID2-GoodGuyXx-23-123-4-123-43 )
      -Builds player using result string
      -does similar requests REEAALY FREQUENTLY  ( total requests of 8 - 12 times per seconds )
      With my current ultimate cheap web hosting, i can handle 2 players with low lag ( lol ) but, i want to handle around 20-100 players,
      just need a clear path, i have been struggling with google cloud sql and other vps server dedicated server options, i dont wanna pay much and get ripped off.
