The logged-in user must have Write permission to the WebSphere Transformation Extender installation directory on Windows operating systems



On all Microsoft® Windows® operating systems, when the logged-in user does not have Write permission to the directory where WebSphere® Transformation Extender products are installed, the functionality of a number of components is impaired.


Multiple components can be affected. For example, if you try to import a type tree in Design Studio, you might receive the message: “Cannot open ttmaker.log”.


On all Microsoft Windows operating systems, the logged-in user must have Write permission to the directory in which WebSphere Transformation Extender products are installed.

Resolving The Problem

Ensure that the WebSphere® Transformation Extender installation directory has Write permission for the logged-in user.
