Error Code 1 for VCF import

Hi, can anyone help me with this error 1 code I receive when I import my VCF data into Genome Browse? I've tried both the long-hand folder search and the quicker drag and drop. It shows it in the Plot View but says: "Failed to open for writing: C:/Users.........snp-indel.genome/vcf.gz (error code 1)"

Prior to importing. I unzipped this compressed file using winzip and put it in a separate folder, so not sure why it's showing the .gz suffix on the end of the file name. It's just a .vcf file i asked GB to import.

I checked the Win11 folder properties and full read/write access is allowed (saw an earlier BAM import post on the community that suggested this)

Any help would be appreciated as the GB software looks very useful! If it helps, I'm using version 3.1.0 and I've downloaded the full reference genome for GRCh38 too Thanks, John
