If you write to a folder without the proper permissions, an output file cannot be created or an opening error may occur. To fix this, you need to take full control of the specified folder.
Adobe Premiere Pro does not require total control, only read and write permissions. However, granting full access permission can fix a resolution error.

By default, Premiere Pro uses the h.264 or MPEG codec format to render video. However, due to compression problems, you may receive the following error message:
Codec compression error. This codec may not support the required image size, or there may be a hardware or memory error.
To fix this, you can try changing the codec format as described above.
8. Check media for file corruption
If Adobe Premiere does not export the video, some images in the project may be damaged.
One way to solve this problem is to turn off all but one track and export the video. Do this for all tracks until you can fix the export error.
If a project is found, save it under a different name and export it by deleting the problematic frame or track.
Then create a new project, open the problematic track or frame, and save it under a new name. Open the exported video, import the newly saved damaged frame and paste it into the final project.
Export the video, and you should be able to render it seamlessly.
