Helix ALM Windows File Attachment Upload Error
An error occurs when uploading a file attachment in Helix ALM on Windows. The following error is returned when a record is saved with a new attachment:
'A communication error occurred during the transaction. Socket error caused incomplete request from [xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx]: File Transfer Error.'
This error generally occurs when Helix ALM has restricted access to the local Temp directory. The Temp directory is defined in the System > Environment settings.
Windows generally uses the following setting for the temp directory: %SystemRoot%Temp (e.g., C:\WindowsTemp). This directory probably has restrictive permission settings that do not give the Helix ALM read/write access.
Locate the Temp directory and change permissions to allow read/write access.
Specify an alternate Temp directory that has read/write privileges.
