Download configuration: Download failed: Access to the path is denied


When I try to open the Inventory Beacon: it returns the following error: Download configuration: Download failed: Access to the path is denied  ( see attachment). This error occurs only for a part of the users.  Can you tell me if this issue is related to missing privileges for those specific users?

Two things I can suggest:

  • Are you opening the beacon interface using "run as Administrator"?
  • Does the InventoryBeacon.log (in C:\ProgramData\Flexera Software\Compliance\Logging\InventoryBeacon) have any error messages that are related to the one you see?


Yes, i open the beacon interface as an administrator.  Indeed in the inventorybeacon.log I am able to see the error:
