A strange error occurred today as I was creating a new Guidance Project from the GAT. I was getting an access denied error when using the register recipe. The message stated that the installlog was denied access on my “Z:” drive. I searched all over my setting in visual studio, since my project resided under “C:\Projects” for any setting that would use the Z drive. After about 15 minutes of troubleshooting I went down the path of default profile directories. This was the key. It seems as my profile from a command prompt sets me to the root of the Z: drive. In order to get the recipe to properly work, I had to modify the registry for AutoRun of the command line.
2. Change the following: \HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Command Processor
3. Add/Change the AutoRun value to “CD /d” plus whatever default path you want.
That’s it. To me that was a real weird error. Hope this helps someone. My next question is when a recipe runs, what context is it running under.
