Error During Distribution, "Access to File Denied"

Last modified


During the Update manager distribution stage you may receive the error - Error During Distribution, "Access to File Denied".



This error message indicates that the software can not write to the software database.
If this error message appears during the distribution stage of the update manager process then the software database will not be able to be updated, resulting in missing or incorrect data.
This can be caused by a number of factors, the most common being insufficient security privileges or an Antivirus / Firewall system blocking access to the database.

This error may also occur if the HUBB software was unable to correctly close off any open handles within the software database upon the last exit of the software.
