Access is Denied error when trying to record using vMix

You may receive the following error message when attempting to start a recording in vMix:
Access is denied. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070005 (E_ACCESSDENIED))
Once cause of this error is due to having the third party anti virus software Avast installed. It is not recommended to use third party anti virus software when using vMix as they are known to interfere. We recommend uninstalling this program and instead using the inbuilt Windows Defender to secure your system.
