Issue

When I try to start my configurations or to connect a tool, I receive an error message which mentions another user and the ToolLibTemp.

Examples: 


Could not create temp directory C:\Users\USER\AppData\Local\Temp\ECU-TEST 2020.1\ToolLibTemp: [WinError 5] Access is denied: '\\\\?\\C:\\Users\\USER\\AppData\\Local\\Temp\\ECU-TEST 2020.1'
Could not create temp directory C:\Users\USER\AppData\Local\Temp\ECU-TEST 2020.1\ToolLibTemp: [WinError 183] Cannot create a file when that file already exists: '\\\\?\\C:\\Users\\USER\\AppData\\Local\\Temp\\ECU-TEST 2020.1\\ToolLibTemp'


Solution

This happens if the TempDir path in the ToolLibs.ini points to one fixed user. Normally the path should be relative and look like:


ToolLibs.ini
[General]
TempDir = %TEMP%\ECU-TEST 2020.1\ToolLibTemp

In some cases the ToolLibs.ini is created with a absolute path to one user, so that other users cannot access it.


To fix this issue there are 2 different workarounds:


  1. You can edit the file and add the relative path instead of the absolute path
    or
  2. You can delete the file and restart ECU-TEST with the desired user 
  1. Copy the ToolLibs.ini file to another place on you PC
  2. Change the TempDir entry in this copy to a suitable path
  3. Start ECU-TEST via:
    • ECU-TEST.exe --toollibsini=C:\"PathToTheNewFile"\ToolLibs.ini
      or
    • Tool-Server.exe --toollibsini= C:\"PathToTheNewFile"\ToolLibs.ini 

The ToolLibs.ini is stored under %allusersprofile%\TraceTronic\ECU-TEST[VERSION].
If the active user does not have write access to %allusersprofile%, the ToolLibs.ini is stored under %localappdata%.
From within ECU-TEST you can also open the ToolLibs.ini with the shortcut Ctrl+F11.
