    Default active activation context ?

    I am comparing two folders using B.C.4, local "C:" and network mapped "Q:".
    I copied some files from C to Q and some directories, and the copy seems to be ok.
    Then I have been able to delete files from "C:".
    But, when I try to remove directories, I get a strange error, "Unable to delete <pathname>: The requested lookup key was not found in any active activation context".
    I copy below the log.


    Thank You and regards.

    Hello,

    And if you try to delete the file with Windows Explorer, do you see the same error message? Are you running Windows 7?

    It looks like this may be an older Windows issue; the error text is not generate from BC4. I found this older thread here referencing Windows XP:
    https://social.technet.microsoft.com...orum=itproxpsp

    Which suggests opening your Group Policy Editor, User Configuration > Administrative Templates > System > User Profiles, and disabling "Limit profile size"

    From Windows Explorer, it asks for confirmation, and then I am able to delete the directory (I attach a screen-shot).
    It is a Windows Server 2012 R2.
    I disabled the policy, but still it does not work.


    Thank You and regards

    Hello,

    BC4 is unable to prompt for UAC control or Administrator Access. If you right click the BC4 shortcut and select "Run As Administrator" does this help?

    Yes, in this way it works.
    I had to choose, instead of "Q:", the UNC path "\", since mappings done in not elevated mode are not kept IN elevated mode.
