  • "You don't have permission to view this object" when you try to watch the vRO in web client workflows

    I just installed vRO 6.0.4 in my environment (vSphere 6, 6.1, 6.1 VR - plugins for both installed SRM). I plugged on SSO (using my account [email protected]) successfully, said the the vRO client vCenter and I can see all the workflows in vRO when I go through the web client of vSphere. However, when I click on any workflow, I get a blank gray window with the error in the title of this message.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hey, GS long time not to mention.

    Couple of quick question, when you logged in service webclient which account were you using and is this account a member of the Group Admin vCO you have configured with SSO?

    You have configured permissions inside vRO?  When you are in the high-level view tab workflow that you will need to assign at least display and inspect the permissions for all the people who will access the vRO via the web-client workflows.  This authorization at the top of the tree gives users the rights to connect to the vRO to vSphere, then you can set the execute permissions on the workflow in the context menu.

  • Windows Photo Viewer cannot open this picture because you don't have permission to access the location of the file

    I reinstalled my computer using the same disk of win7 recovery for sale.

    But I found files in the folder (windows.old) could not open, even the files could be moved to a new place.

    I could review the authorization of certain files, but several folders could not be revised approval, which include many files of images or movie files.

    I want to know how to solve the problem (you might consider the photos and movies could be challenged).

    Thank you!

    Original title: cannot access files on a folder on the drive hard usb after you have turned off sharing on a network.

    About a week and a half, I have set up my external hard drive usb to share on my network domestic as well as my brother could access some files on his laptop computer.  I've been playing with the security of some of the files on the hard drive and made sure that he could not access some of them.  I don't remember exactly what I did unfortunately.  After I had changed the security access, I was still able to access all files and my brother could not access it.  He got the files on the hard drive and I turned off my computer.  A few days later, I tried to access the files that I had limited and I was stuck.  When I went back in the drive to recover some files, I received an error "you don't have permission to access this folder.  Click on continue to have access to this folder permanently. "When I click on continue that another dialogue box comes up saying"you refused permission to access this folder.  To access this file you will need to use the Security tab. "I click on the link to Security tab and another dialog box appears asking"to continue, you must be an administrative user with permission to view this object's security properties.  Do you want to continue? "I'm obviously the administrator because I have this computer and I'm the only account on it.  From this point, I don't know what I do or what I'm supposed to do to recover my files.  I played a bit with a couple of things and I was able to get into certain folders, but its an extremely long process that I don't have the time for.  A side effect of which in fact so I can see the files, is that for any movie file, I try to access it, I get an error.  When I try to open it with Windows Media Player, I get the error "Windows Media Player cannot access the file.  The file may be in use (which is not the case), you won't have access to the computer where the file is stored (which is not supposed to because the computer on which it is stored my personal computer), or your proxy settings are may not be not correct (what?). "If I try to use another program like VLC media player, I get a similar problem where an error comes up saying that it was impossible to access the file.  I can see the file and see the properties but I am unable to actually see the film.  I can't move the file anywhere because I don't have administrative rights.  I'm under Windows 7 Ultimate, and if someone could help me please, that would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi Ridley,

    I see that this problem is old enough but you (or others) may have problems with it. Here's what I did:
    -Got to your hard drive and right click on the folder that is causing all the trouble.
    -Click on properties.
    -Click on the Security tab
    -Then click on advanced
    -You will see a window with a few user names. Now click on owner in the tabs above.
    -Click on edit, then select the user name you want to open the folder and don't forget to tick the box that says "Replace the owner of subcontainers and objects", then click on apply.
    A pop will come which says something like "You have replaced the property for the selected records" or something in this way. It worked for me and I hope this post is helpful for some people.

  • When I try to change an .ini file in a folder of the game in program files, Windows 7 tells me I don't have permission and "contact your administrator." Guess what, it would be me. What should I do now?

    I tried to activate the debug mode for Baldur's Gate 2: Shadows of Amn , so I go into program files, I find the .ini file that I need to change to enable the debug mode. I change it, so I try to save him. "You don't have permission to save in this location. Contact your administrator to save in this location. "I do not understand that I am the administrator of the machine! What is the problem! Please help me!

    Press the Windows key, type in Notepad, when Notepad is displayed in the list, do a right click and click "Run as Administrator". Open the file using Notepad and save after you make changes.

    While you are the admin, some features are always locked and need you to check if it is correct. What if all could do whatever he wanted this to be a problem. Confused, but safer, I guess.

    Separated from this thread.

    I have the same problem when I try to access some of my photos through any method (File Explorer, IE, Windows Photo Viewer, etc.).  When I try to display the image, I get an error message that says "Windows Photo Viewer cannot open this picture because you don't have the appropriate permissions to access the location of the file."  A few photos in the folder open very well.

    Photo Gallery can't open this picture because you do not have permission to the location of the file asscess RJ

    I recently started having the SAME problem. Windows Photo Viewer working wonder in the past months on the same exact images without any problems.

    I suspect that Microsoft update the code somewhere which pushed as an update - what is now the cause of the problem.

    As a diagnosis, I tried with the right button "open with...". "and chose the paint. The same file opened without any problem.

    All the pictures are generated for all images without problem.

    Still, Windows Photo Viewer cannot display ALL my image files. Paint has no problem.

    Similarly, right click 'open with... '. "and choose Microsoft Office 2010. Loading the image without any problems.

    If the original poster has the same success using other programs - then the problem is with the Windows Photo Viewer - Microsoft of not having it recognize permissions for the code or something.

    It's on Windows 7 Professional 64 - bit. Latest updates applied Microsoft.
