VDS throwing Access is Denied

Hi All,

For our new project purpose, VDS is
freshly installed and when I configured new configuration and saved anything it
is throwing error as below screenshot.


In order to eliminate the above

I checked in installation files
there I found a file named, .vdssettings file I renamed it to vdssettings and

After that this error is not coming.

        • Hi Norman/Matt,

          I am not sure, whether if I Run as Administrator i will able to solve the issue.

          But with my existing Credentials, I am rectified as I stated above.

          Thank you your suggestions 🙂 .



          • Hi Jaya,

            the security concept of Windows is like this: You having Administrator credentials is only allowing you to run applications as Administrator (it will not start them automatically in that context). If you start an application normally the application will not be able to modify certain files and folders on a file system, nor will it be able to install a service (which you need to do soon as well).

            To run an application as Administrator will enable the application to do so and your authorizations as Administrator on the systems allow you to do that.


          • I agree with Norman.

            My advice would be to check with your system administrators and ensure that the account you are logging in with has permissions to write to the VDS folders.


  • Hi Jaya,

    You need to get modify access to the folder where .vdsettings file is saved. That should resolve this issue.

    Let me know how you go. Cheers!
