This message "Unable to Write Cache File" comes up when I try to load up my newly installed Flight Simulator X game. I've making the folder it's accessible, however when I untick the read-only box, and hit ok, then reopen properties, it's ticked again.
Help!

Hi Royal. The "read only" folder problem is not a problem at all. Folders cannot be set to "read only", that's why there is a square block in the tick-box rather than the tick-box being empty, and it's why the square block will always return to that tick-box. -- it's telling you that you cannot use that option on folders'. Only files can be made "read only", not folders.

The only help I can suggest is you check the disk for errors using Windows error-checking tool, making sure the option to "automatically fix file system errors" is ticked.

Problem solved, even though I had only one account, "Running as Administrator" worked.
