Access denied indicates a permissions issue. Since this is a quality tool that would seem to indicate you're trying to run this in a unit test or other testing tool. It is possible the account you're trying to run the test under doesn't have sufficient privileges. This is most likely true if you can run the tests locally in VS just fine but it fails when trying to run them from a build or similar situation.

Moving this to the testing forum so they can better assist you.

Hi yogi223355,

Please share us which version of Test Agent and Test Controller you have installed?

During the installing, please run them in Administrator.
