Do you have writing permissions on the network path? Have you tried to map the network drive to a letter?

Actually, I've been having this problem as well. During one of my test recordings, I am saving an XML file to a networked, shared folder. I mapped the network location to a drive letter and made triple sure I full permission to the folder: what I observed is that sometimes it will write without issues but on a subsequent iteration, I will get the "you do not have permission..." error. The only thing I haven't tried is asking my admin for local admin rights to the server itself which, and I think you'd agree, is not the best solution. Any other ideas? I'm using v5.4.1.25490

Hi Thomas,

It seems to be a permission issue or an issue of wrong configuration.

I would suggest taking a look at some Microsoft troubleshooting pages, for example the following: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/wind ... 353?auth=1

Generally, I would not recommend using network drives during test execution. The best solution would be to save the file locally.

Agreed, save locally and then copy to remote locations after the test.

If you don't use a Continuous Integration solution like Jenkins/Bamboo/Team City to run your tests, you should really consider it as they can handle these kinds of things very easily without cluttering your test with logistical/administrative trivialities.
Shortcuts usually aren't...
