Configuration Manager - Error on Configuring EARs "Could not clean working directory"


Level 3


I've got an ES2.5 turnkey installation on Windows 64bit JBoss - it was giving an error when I ran configuration Manager.  I'm recording it here for future reference if other people get this error also

On Step one (Configure EAR files), was always giving the error "ALC-LCM-000-000" could not clean working directory

Livecycle was previously installed (and runs OK), but re-running Config Manager always gave this error.

To get around this, I found that once I stopped JBoss, and restarted Configuration Manager without JBoss running, I was able to Configure the EARs without this problem

The Config Manager log always recorded the stack trace error below:

Are you still facing this issue?

Did you run LCM with the same user who installed it?

Also, could you confirm that an anti-virus isn't running on your system with on-access scan enabled that might be preventing the LCM to delete this file?

Good spot.  Turning off the Anti-Virus seems to have done the trick.  Thanks!
