I just fixed it in Windows. I have done three things, which one have fixed it I am not sure.

1. Run cmd prompt as administrator.

2. takeown /? this command is equivalent to chown (linux) but for windows.

3. cacls -cacls /E /T /G :F

4. simply go in $USER /Users/calvin/.config/configstore/ and make files unhidden.

it worked for me like charm. I have been trying to fix this since many days.
