Project Tool Permission Denied



  • I was trying the re-compile my C++ plugins for R21 and dowloaded the most recent Project Tool from Maxon Downloads.
    When I try to run the Project Tool from the Terminal, I get a Permission Denied error.
    I made sure that the privileges of all the folders (the Project Tool folder and the sdk folder) are all set to Read & Write for all possible users (I'm the only one using this machine).
    What could I be doing wrong?



  • Hi rui_mac, thanks for reaching out us.

    Can you please report:

    • OS;
    • your user level (admin or standard user)
    • the result of "ls -l" (or equivalent on Windows) in the terminal window where the kernel_app is located.

    Thanks, Riccardo



  • Thank you for the reply, Riccardo.
    I'm the administrator of my machine.
    The OS is MacOS Catalina (10.15.1)
    And here is the output of the ls -l command:

    total 23976
    drwxr-xr-x 17 ruibatista staff 578 Dec 1 01:18 corelibs
    drwxr-xr-x 3 ruibatista staff 102 Dec 1 01:18 kernel_app.app
    -r--r--r-- 1 ruibatista staff 5795592 Feb 5 2019 kernel_app_64bit
    -r--r--r-- 1 ruibatista staff 6478264 Feb 5 2019 kernel_app_64bit.exe
    drwxr-xr-x 8 ruibatista staff 272 Dec 1 01:18 resource



  • Thanks Rui for following up.

    Since kernel_app.app is just a folder on macOS, can you also check what permission has ./kernel_app.app/Contents/MacOS/kernel_app which is the real executable?

    In my case I see

    $ ls -l ./kernel_app.app/Contents/MacOS/kernel_app 
    -rwxr-xr-x  1 riccardogigante  staff  3998432 Feb  5  2019 ./kernel_app.app/Contents/MacOS/kernel_app
    

    Finally please have a look at this thread.



  • This is what I get:

    total 7816
    -r--r--r-- 1 ruibatista staff 3998432 Feb 5 2019 kernel_app



  • Ok, made it work now. Thank you so much.
