Not writable in Windows

BmSurvey say "Not writable" htdocs/uploads/thumbs

Preferences for file "thumbs" does not state any write protection.

Sys: ImpressCMS 1.1.2

What is it?
How do I fix it?

What kind of Windows are you talking about? Windows Server?
In case: Does the IIS-(www)-user have writing permission to that path?

Just to make sure: Try writing a temporary file using a php. If it works there is an issue with the module.

As long as the folder is not checked "read-only" in its properties then it is writable... furthermore there is no such thing as rwwr on win... which means the module is written for nix systems, and is specifically checking for -rw on the folder.

In case of WinXP and XAMPP it should work. Are you sure that there is no typo in the folders name? Sometimes it is that easy.

The uploads folder seem to have a write protection.

When this is unchecked Win asks about subfolders end files. I give folder, subfolder and files (to be non blocked) but it looks like it does not obey. The write protection remains.

changing the post while I am writing a reply ... shame on you.
You should check for any typing erros in the folder name.

Regarding the writing protection on "uploads". It is the same with my upload folder (local installation on windows) but in my case everything works fine.

Is there already a "Security" tab in the Preferences Window? Maybe you should have a closer look at it.

Win admin? Yes should be. Where can I see this for sure?

Write protected upload folder. Can this be some security thing with XAMPP? Any suggestions how I can check this?

In the upload folder is remains (a folder named imBlogging) from imBlogging module that is now uninstalled. Does this bring any clues?

Command line: net user [your-user-name]
There should be something like "local group-membership: administrators"

No, I don't think so.

No, but you can delete it in case you are not using imBloggin anymore.

Regarding the php test file I was talking about : Save the following code as anything.php within your ICMS root directory and check whether it works. It should create a file named testFile.txt within the thumbs folder. If there is such a file after executing the php there is no writing protection issue.

include "mainfile.php";

$myFile XOOPS_ROOT_PATH."/uploads/thumbs/testFile.txt";
$fh fopen($myFile'w') or die("can't open file");
$stringData "testn";
fwrite($fh$stringData);
fclose($fh);
