Could not write to INI File

Hi there,

I get this error on some clients that do not update.
When I try this manually, I get the same error again and again.

Unfortunately, McAfee isn't clever enough to also include the name and/or location of the file it cannot write to.

Does anyone have a solution?

Thanks in Advance,

Dmace

Hi all, im also having the same message

Keep on saying unable to write to INI file, has not updated since 4th August 2008

@ Metalhead, where do you find this accessprotectionlog.txt file pls?

RE: Could not write to INI File

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\McAfee\DesktopProtection\AccessProtectionLog.txt is default.

RE: Could not write to INI File

Hi and thx Jsuuronen. Had a check at it and only found those programs and others being blocked by McAfee when trying to run/execute
But still does not explain as to why, during the manual update, we get the error could not write to INI file and our clients are still not updated. Any other help in this?

Thx

RE: Could still not write to INI File...

Have you tried to switch off the whole AccessProtection and then run an update - does this work ?

RE: Could still not write to INI File...

Yes, I've switch off the whole AccessProtection, and it's still not working... :mad:
