CA WORKLOAD AUTOMATION DE (DSERIES) DESKTOP CLIENT:DSRDTC
When attempting to launch the Desktop Client, the following error is displayed in a pop-up window:
NOTE: The Windows path and root folder name may vary depending on where the Desktop Client is installed and the version.
This error is seen when the user logged on to the Windows OS is not an Administrator. This is due to a lack of "write" permissions on some of the Desktop Client files.
Grant the OS user, or a group the user belongs to, "write" permissions to the <CAWA_Desktop_Client_install_dir\configuration" folder.
Open the windows File Explorer to the root installation folder of the CA Workload Automation DE Desktop Client.
Right-click on the 'configuration' folder and select Properties.
Go to the Security tab
Click the Edit button to change permissions
Add the user or group to the list and select it
Tick the "Write" box under the Allow column
Click the "Apply" button
Click "OK" to close
After this, the user will be able to launch the CA Workload Automation DE Desktop Client.
