Hello all

So I'm getting the "Access to the path 'C:\Program Files\OutSystems\Platform Server\running\HtmlToPdfConverter.0699701339\\binaries' is denied." error in the timer executed on publish for this component (brand new server, brand new instalation of the platform/component)

Got the same error trying to upload the files by the admin page.

So I'm guessing it requires some rights to access the running directory. 2 Questions:
  1. what's the minimum access required for the component to work properly?
  2. why is this not in any of the requirements of the component?
Best regards,

I just experienced something of the like...

The solution is to (if like us, have it hosted on-prem) to create a binaries folder in die running version of the Html2PdfConverter folder (usually in C:\Program Files\OutSystems\Platform Server\running\HtmlToPdfConverter.<some_identifier>, and grant sufficient access to the OutSystems runtime service user to create and delete files in that folder. I gave my user Modify access, since on the administration page of Html2PdfConverter you can also delete binaries.
