Your Access Privileges Do Not Allow You to Perform this Action

I just installed Inspector Pro 5 and imported a DDR. During the process, I received three or four dialogs with the message, "Your access privileges do you allow you to perform this action." After clearing each of them, everything else seemed to proceed without problem, but I don't know what might not have happened that should have, and what information might be missing from my analysis.

    I just experienced the same thing. Same concern. I have yet to be able to see a completed import/analysis complete, but I'm still waiting. I only know there is another window open presumedly doing something ( ••).

    I seem to recall more user feedback during this process is past versions, but maybe not.

    Hi Michal,

    My import completed (despite the dialogs), and there was no other window open afterwards. I did see the import progress bars, as with older versions. I’m just not sure if something may be missing because steps could not be completed.

    I too just installed version 5 and have a "ton" of these error messages in one section of the import "Your access privileges do not allow you to perform this action". Sounds like a bug that Vince can look into.

    Hi Greg, Dennis and Michael -

    This is a known issue (the access privileges notification) that is annoying but still results in the analysis being correct. It has been corrected in version 5.5, which will be available ASAP.

    Michael - Did your import every complete successfully?

    Hi Tonya

    My 2 issues are getting the access privileges error 50 times (really) and having the system show field and script errors when there are none. For Example, GetASNUMBER(ABC) >= GETASNUMBER (XYZ) both are numbers, or scripts that are commented out.

    Also, can you please send me your DDRs, identify what InspectorPro version you're using (build number) and your OS version. I want to look into those as possibilities as well.

    The privilege error is fixed in the next update should be out very shortly.

    That update also includes support for native 14 features.

    As for the errors - can you send me a sample of the DDR so we can take a closer look.

    The permission thing is fixed in the 5.5 version. Should be done this week.

    Are you having any other problems? Or finding things that are problems?

    Let me know and we’ll see how we can fix that.

    Is there a way that you can send me your DDR and what things in particular you are having trouble with.

    Hi Vince,

    I haven’t had any problems other than the permission thing. If I find anything, I’ll let you know. My only concern was that something might not have been imported, due to the permission problem, or that something might not have been reported correctly, due to it. I’ll be waiting for 5.5.
