I’ve just installed Radzen to give it a try, as someone who used to use VS Lightswitch but hasn’t done any development for a couple of years. I’ve installed the community version/free trial and have created a very basic app. When I click “run”, I get the above error.
radzen: Error: EPERM: operation not permitted, symlink ‘C:\Program Files\Radzen\resources\node_modules’ -> ‘O:\Reporting Services\Gareth\Radzen\AbsenceDB\client\node_modules’
From searching the internet for a solution, the only thing that people seem to suggest is to run the command as an administrator. That isn’t going to be an option for me. Is there a way around this? Is there something simple that I’m missing?
It seems that you are using network drive? Maybe it will be better to create the Radzen app on your local drive.
Thanks. I’ll give that a try.
Yeah, that’s worked. Thanks.
Is it possible to use a network drive to store the files, though? I’m trying to see if Radzen will be a useful tool for use at my place of work, and all of our files are generally stored on the network rather than the local drive.
When you run the application Radzen will attempt to create symlink and if the app is on a network drive and you are not admin you will get the above error. We are not aware of any other solution except to use your local drive. Angular CLI cannot work on a network drive as well:
Ok, thanks. It probably won’t be a major issue.
