Modify text on Linux

Hi Everyone,
I am trying to modify a text file, that contains user name and password.
User enters user name and password through IA , and then i modify the corresponding file with the values.
I am using modify text file action.
This all works fine with the Windows.
But when i am doing same thing with Linux it doesnt do the changes and shows following error in the log.
Modify Text File - Single File: No Target Chosen
Status: ERROR
Additional Notes: ERROR - Unable to locate ASCII text file to be manipulated. Deferring...
Any help?



Thanks,

Re: Modify text on Linux

Could you check if maybe you've put a platform condition on that file so that on Linux it's not installed? Would it be possible for you to post your project?

Re: Modify text on Linux

You can enable logging for the installation and if this is not enough you can output debug information to a file.

Re: Modify text on Linux

Well, almost an year later, I encounter the same problem on the same IA version... and then I realize that the error message is not at all useful as it omits an essential information: what is the filename it cannot find?!?
