When adding or editing an item in a Helix ALM web client, an error similar to the following is returned after a user selects a file to attach to an item and clicks Upload:

'An error occurred during file upload. The temp file could not be generated.'


The default IIS 7 configuration on Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 may cause conflicts when attempting to generate Helix ALM Web temp files.
