NML playlists will only export to default folder on Win 10 (running Traktor 3.5.2)

I'm using Traktor 3.5.2 on a Win 10 system and recently encountered a bug when exporting a playlist. If I export to the default folder (users/username/documents) the playlist exports perfectly. If I try and export to another folder, the playlist file is not generated, but no error message is presented. While this is only a minor inconvenience, it would be good to determine if this is a universal bug or something specific to my system. Thanks in advance.

    Does it happen on any other directory, in every location you try? It could be an issue with file management rights – if you're trying to save to something inside the Program Files directory structure, for example. Have you tried anywhere you KNOW your user has write access? The Downloads directory should be a pretty safe bet if you're not sure. Do subdirectories of Documents work as save locations?

    @DJ Sepia Can you try re-analyzing the tracks in the playlist before exporting again? Keep us updated!

    Thanks for your comments, folks. I've since discovered that by default, new folders created on my Windows 10 PC seem be assigned "Read Only". I'll try re-exporting to a folder that does not have the "Read Only" attribute checked under preferences and see if that fixes the problem. I am confident that it will. @wayfinder was probably on the money.
