Connection Failed (FAILED: Permission denied)


Hey, I just started my game, wanting to try out the Escalation, and was hit with an error:


Unable to connect to the HITMAN 2 service. Saving dynamic resources
FAILED: “Permission denied” For more information, contact HITMAN 2 support."

Only thing I could find online was this thread (Saving dynamic resources FAILED: "Permission denied"), but nothing in there helped me.

No hard- or software changes since yesterday’s update, after which the game had worked fine.

I have tried restarting my game, PC and router, validating my game files, running as admin, checked the permissions on the folder, deleting the file in the folder, everything. Nothing works.
