Yes, with Windows 10, there is a feature called Sandboxing, where even if your logged in user has write permissions to where the stack is saving, you will still  not be able to write there. Program Files is a great example. The solution is not to save stacks. Stacks should not be the place you save information. Think of them as more like web forms. 

I learned this the hard way. Instead you should save settings and such in a "safe" location, either in a database or else in some kind of settings file. I have a whole system for this. I arrayEncode an array I use runtime for my settings and save it to disk each time a setting changes.
