Location of temporary files for MI Tools?

Recommended Posts

I am having problems with the permissions on our remote desktop machines when trying to use certain MI Tools. If I try to run 'snap_n_trim_cn_xsec_plines.mbx', I get an 'unable to create new table' error message almost immediately.

Any ideas what I'm missing? Many thanks.

Hi Neil,

The tools rely on being installed in a folder called "C:\Program Files\MapInfo\Professional\Tools\WBM". The same folder is where the temporary files are written. I suspect the folder doesn't exist, hence why it can't create the temporary files. If the folder does exist, then there may be some sort of write permission issue with the user's login/account. If that's not the problem, then please let me know and I'll give you a hand to resolve the issue.

Kind regards,
