"Could not set attributes on file"


The error indicates that Set File Attributes Action has failed to set attributes on specified file or folder.


Some possible causes are—File name, folder name or path contains characters that are not allowed in file and folder names; File or folder with specified name does not exist in specified path; The user account that executes Automation Workshop has no permission to write files in specified path; Specified local or network disk is not accessible or is read only.

Also, it is possible that the file system you are using lacks support for certain attributes, such as the Encrypted file attribute, which is not supported by NTFS on Windows consumer editions.


Verify whether specified path or folder name contains characters that are not allowed in folder name. Check if specified file or folder is present in specified path.

Login with administrator account to set appropriate permissions. To set permissions, open Security tab in specified folder properties, choose user account on which Automation Workshop is executed and mark necessary checkboxes. Verify if specified drive and location is accessible and is not read only.
