Failed to Create Interpreter

I seem to be having a world of trouble getting PyCharm to work. Why am I getting this error message, and what can I do to get coding in PyCharm?

From the first glance, it looks like file permission issue. Try running PyCharm as Administrator.

What type of interpreter do you create and where? If you're creating virtualenv, make sure you have full permissions on the target directory.

If this doesn't help, please provide [IDE logs](

Hey, Andrey, thanks for checking my post.

The issue was that the interpreter was saved in a hidden folder in which I did not have permissions: the WindowsApps folder.

After uninstalling the interpreter and reinstalling it into a visible folder in which I had access, I was able to use the interpreter in the PyCharm client.
