Windows Defender: Blocking app from writing to the hard drive

Program is installed, but it got flagged during installation by windows defender.  When I turn off defender and try to save a file, I get the error messages below.

SOLUTION: The way to solve this is to add RetirementView to the Exclusions list inside Windows Defender.

1). Go under Virus & Threat Protection

2). Turn OFF real-time protection temporarily

3). Scroll down to Exclusions and click on Add or remove exclusions.

4). When file dialog pops up, go surf in explorer to this folder:

C:\Program Files (x86)\RetirementView

And then add that folder to exclude.  This should fix your problem.  You can then turn back on real-time protection and confirm you still don't get the errors.
