When running KNIME on above OS I get follwing error:
Could not launch the product because the specified workspace cannot be created. The specified workspace directory is either invalid or read-only
This is 100% reproducable
1. Create new folder
2. set it as workspace
3. do nothing in knime
4. close knime
5. restart knime
6- Above error appears
user has admin privilege.
What is causing this issue and how can it be solved?
This seems to a pure Eclipse problem (no KNIME code is involved at that point in time). A bit of googling shows that it may happen if the workspace is on a network drive. You can try to add "-Dosgi.locking=none" at the bottom of knime.ini.
Great. That fixed the issue!
EDIT: Was to soon
KNIME starts now but can't save workflows and soem files seem to be locked.

FATAL SaveWorkflowRunnable File not found
ERROR WorkflowEditor Could not save workflow: File access problems: E:\Data\knime-workspace\test-workflow\workflow.knime (Access is denied)
I will try to solve issue with sys admin. Seems to be specific to the setup. It works fine when putting the worksapce on the c: drive. (we should put it on other drvie for disk space reasons)
