Darktable 3.6 will not open nor uninstall in Win 10

Hello, I'm new to Darktable. I downloaded and successfully installed version 3.6 on a Win 10 desktop. I cannot open the program. I get the message, "Windows cannot access the specified device path. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access them." I have admin status but I logged off and logged on as administrator but I could not access the program or uninstall it because again I did not have the proper permission. Help.

Sounds like the permissions are wrong on the folder it was installed to.  Fix that and it should run and/or uninstall.

Are you running AV that also runs application control? Programs blocked by application control typically display a permissions error when trying to run a program that is being blocked.
