"Can not save configuration file"


The error indicates that Automation Workshop failed to save new or renamed Task folders and files into configuration file. As a consequence all new Tasks, Tasks in renamed folders as well as new and renamed Task folders are lost when closing Automation Workshop Manager.

If Automation Workshop Service is running, it loads these new or updated Tasks and starts to execute them, however, only until the moment Service is stopped or system is restarted. Although, Task files and folders remain on the disk (leading to impossibility to create Tasks and Task folders with the same name), they can neither be seen in Automation Workshop Manager nor executed by Automation Workshop Service.


Possible causes for inability of Automation Workshop to save configuration file is that either configuration file attributes are changed to read-only, or current Windows account is not granted permission to read or write files in necessary folder (hence, access denied error message).


Verify whether user account that executes Automation Workshop has necessary privileges to read or write files in C:\ProgramData\Febooti Software\Febooti Automation Workshop\Task Files\ and that Workshop.config file is not read-only.

If necessary, login with administrator account to set appropriate permissions. To set permissions, open Security tab in folder C:\ProgramData\Febooti Software\Febooti Automation Workshop\Task Files\ properties, choose user account on which Automation Workshop is executed and mark necessary checkboxes.

Go to C:\ProgramData\Febooti Software\Febooti Automation Workshop\Task Files\, open Workshop.config file properties and check whether Read-only checkbox is marked.

Verify if drive (for example, C:\) where Febooti Automation Workshop stores configuration has enough free space to write files and folders.
