    Error 75 path/ file access error

    We run Intelliview for our report writing. It is accessed via vb6. It is installed on around 20 machines and works fine on 19 of them. One machine, it will work for administrator logon and on 1 of the 2 users. The other user whenever any report button is clicked (there are 40 or 50 possibilities) the Path/ file access error 75 appears.

    The user profile that does not work is actually copied from the one that does work.

    I have done a lot of searching on the Internet and have not come up with an answer.

    Re: Error 75 path/ file access error

    You don't say what version of Windows is used. However the problem could be with the profile copy. The users home directory is only accessible by them and the administrators. Users can't access other users home directory/personal files. If the profile was copied and the home directory for the new user hasn't been changed, then the new user won't have access to this directory. That could be why it works for administrators and the original user but not the copied user.

All my code is tested (unless stated explicitly otherwise) with the latest version of Microsoft Visual Studio (using the supported features of the latest standard) and is offered as examples only - not as production quality.

    thanks for the reply (I have been out of office for 2 weeks). OS is windows7. None of our users have a home directory. We actually gave the user one and it still does not run Intelliview. I do think you are on to something with the user profile copy. Maybe delete the user profile and set one up from scratch??

    What is the path? Is it a local path? Is it a server share path?

    What are the permissions for the path?

    \\servername\shared\l
    it is a server path of a folder we create for every user.
    it is shared
    full permissions for user
    Next we are going to delete the profile and create it instead of copying.

    Here is where the code fails. It gets to this line and gives an error message before it completes the line:

    Set myObj = New SynaptrisCOMSDK.SynaptrisReporter

    Re: Error 75 path/ file access error

    Is the SynaptrisReporter COM object registered?

    Yes, in fact, we need to install a patch so it is done by hand. I chacked that first thing.
