Title: RE: [Condor-users] Behaviour of Windows "copy" command?


Is this running on machines that you have control over?  If you do, you could add the condor_reuse accounts to the file permissions for the c:\anim folder

Yup, you're right ...

Indeed, the reason I was using the ENV VAR ...

So, now I see I don't have file access "out of the condor env", how do I
run code which insists on having a hard coded output path.

Actually, it's a basename type thing ... specified as

e.g. c:\anim\frame,10

Whereby the code creates c:\anim\frame0010 onwards ...

but... c:\anim\ must exist and I cannot subsitutue an env var or the like.

Hence trying to use a "known" writeable area ...

Odd that I can write to the c:\windows\temp OK, but am unable to copy from
there back to the temp execute dir

Any ideas how to cirumvent this?
