PC Terraria Launching Crash

Marf Master

Skeletron Prime
(Windows 10)
Error Message when my friend is trying to launch Terraria for the first time:
System.Threading.SynchronizationLockException: Object synchronization
Method was called from an unsynchronized block of code.
at Terraria.IO.Preferences.Save(Boolean createFile)
at Terraria.Main.SaveSettings()
at Terraria.Main.OpenSettings()
at Terraria.Main.Initialize()
at Microsoft.XNA.Framework.Game.RunGame(Boolean useBlockingRun)
at Terraria.Program.LaunchGame(String[] args)


That generally means it can't write to config.json (the preferences file). Make sure that the %USERPROFILE%\Documents\My Games\Terraria folder exists, that files there can be read and written, and if config.json exists, make sure it's not set to read only.
