On Windows 10, I was once able to start mongod (the database server) uses these exact steps:
- Open a Command Prompt with Administrative privileges
Ctrl + Shift + Click on Control Prompt
- Run (The path to mongo executables is enter as a Path system environmental variable)
Every since I have uninstall and reinstall mongodb to get the correct version of mongo Compass, 1.17.0 (Stable), I have received an Access denied error. I have verified that “Full Control” is given to all Users. However, I am still unable to connect to my database which I was previously able to connect to.
