[WM] - Error in zipCreate()

Startbeitrag von Yogi Yang am 01.12.2015 12:19


I am trying to use zipCreate in my Android app for create a zip file of the default data file. But I keep on getting this error message:

2: Access denied: the user has no sufficient rights

How to solve this problem?

as it looks like you don't have the right to write where you are writing, you should try in another directory

Best regards

But if I copy a file in the target folder it works. So why is this function giving such an error then?

Hi Yogi, I had this "problem" recently too - simply under Windows 10. You have to understand the zipCreate function first .. the first parameter is not the phyiscal name of any archive, its just a logical reference to your archive, so, "MyArchive" is just fine, its like the file number for the f-functions, a reference for further handling of the file. The second parameter is the physical file name of the archive file, further operations will use the first parameter as an easy reference to the archive. The extension of the physical name decides about the type of the archive to be created. .zip for ZIP, .7z for 7-zip etc. Then, next commands in your program will add files and directories to the archive, zipAddDirectory, zipAddFile .. at last zipClose will close MyArchive and that's it.

Hello Guenter,

Thanks for the tip. I have used this in past in WD but now I am trying to us it in WM for an app which is targeted for Android.

The Android application can only write to SD Card or its own directory.

I am using the Zip command in Android and this is working fine.

I first create a ZIP by


and then add files


Files is a string containing the paths of the files needed to be added to the Archive, seperated by CR

And finaly, Close the ZIP

Re: [WM] - Error in zipCreate() **Solved**

Thanks everyone for your suggestions and tips.

The actual problem was with the Android Emulator created by AVD.

When I ran the app on physical mobile device it worked like a charm.

Thanks again.
