    I wonder if perhaps your C drive root isn't protected such that you can't write to there. Try exporting to a different location such as your desktop perhaps?

    edit: Also, doesn't windows use the backslash \ for it's addresses? Forward-slash is a Unix convention isn't it?

    At least on my Windows machine, all of the addresses use backslashes (\). However, a Godot project I know has working exports on Windows (using Godot 3.0) shows forward slashes (/) in the export filepath. I think Godot might internally convert the slash based on the platform used.
