Build Failed due to access issue

Post by gvijay11 » Thu Apr 11, 2019 4:31 pm

Getting below error message often during Build/Rebuild of any project. Sometimes a Reboot/Logoff is fixed the issue but its appeared again.

Error Message:

[Could not write lines to file "obj\x86\Debug\MyTest1.csproj.FileListAbsolute.txt". Access to the path 'C:\Users\tst4gp3\Desktop\AdobeAcrobatDC\MyTest1\obj\x86\Debug\MyTest1.csproj.FileListAbsolute.txt' is denied. (MSB3491)

Build started.

Hi,

At first, what’s your Ranorex version? Most recent is 9.0.1. If you are using something older, please upgrade it with most recent version.

At next, are you running Ranorex as an administrator? This should help with similar problems. But generally speaking, using windows desktop, as a file storage, is probably not the best idea. It’s not where you should store files and build solutions. My guess is, that you are trying to build the solution logged as different user, than the one who actually created the solution (tst4gp3)? And this is why you most probably don’t have access to his desktop.

What was the resolution to this issue ? I am seeing a similar issue with my project where both solution items, ranorex.rxsettings and ranorex licensemanager.lic are having access issues and it is intermittent.

Hi,

Do you have solution under source control system? And if yes, which one? At next, have you tried to run Ranorex Studio as administrator?

Hi

Yes its in git and the files are writable. We run it as admin and the UAC is disabled.

Hi,

Two things to try...
1) Try to manually delete entire Debug folder.
2) Move the project out of Desktop, to more appropriate location (e.g. Documents) or even better, create a folder on C:\ drive. Desktop should not be used as a data storage place ;)
