In layman's terms, cryptonote, which is used by monero, is unable to find or create the file
.daemon_lock1 and the directory
C:\ProgramData\bitmonero2. You can browse to
C:\ProgramData to see if the
bitmonero directory currently exists.
If it does exist from previously running the CLI version of bitmonero, this problem is likely caused by some lack of permissions where the GUI wallet is not seen as a user that's allowed write access to this folder in the
ProgramData directory. From what I understand, only the user who creates the directory has write access3 by default, although I don't fully understand the restrictions set by Windows and monero. I would expect the GUI wallet is supposed have access.
While I don't know exactly where the conflict is, here are a couple of ways you can troubleshoot. Shutdown any monero programs currently running. Check the Windows Task Manager (ctrl + shit + esc) to make sure nothing like
monerod.exe is currently running. You can try launching the GUI again and see if it is recognized as a user that has access this time. If it works, then stop here. If not, continue.
If it is still closing with the same error messages, make sure everything monero related is shutdown again. Rename the directory
C:\ProgramData\bitmonero to something else like
C:\ProgramData\bitmonero-backup. Now launch the GUI wallet which should be able to create this directory itself and you can test whether it launches okay.
Important: If you had previously synced the blockchain and want to restore it, the directory
C:\ProgramData\bitmonero\lmdb contains any blockchain data you had previously downloaded and synchronized. Particularly the file
data.mdb contains your blockchain data. Shutdown any bitmonero related software first. You should be able to move the old
data.mdb from your
C:\ProgramData\bitmonero-backup\lmdb directory into the newly created
C:\ProgramData\bitmonero\lmdb directory. If the new
data.mdb you can delete that before replacing it with your backup
data.mdb. Then, delete
lock.mdb and run the GUI wallet. It will create a new
