Error reading file

error reading file

The error is generated by the Microsoft Installer (MSI) program when it can't read the data contained in sprers.eu file. The only way to avoid this problem will be to try shortening this extract path either by configuring a shorter extract location path or by. 1. Locate the CaseWare engagement file's directory within Windows Explorer and find sprers.eu files. · 2. Remove the old corrupted CaseView document *.

Error: Error Error reading from file

Error Message

Note: The content in this article pertains to ArcGIS versions 8.x and 9.x only. Later versions of ArcGIS may contain different functionality, as well as different names and locations for menus, commands and geoprocessing tools.

When installing from an ESRI product CD-ROM, the following error message may occur:

"Error Error reading from file."

This may prevent the installation from completing, as well as causing an installation roll-back.

Depending on the version of Installer, the "Error " may or may not appear.

Cause

There are several conditions that cause this error:

  • There is an issue with the CD-ROM; it may be damaged, scratched or dirty.
  • There may be an issue with the configuration of the CD-ROM drive.
  • There is a known problem with Windows Installer reading compressed files from CD that occurs on some CD-ROM drives. This can occur even if other media read correctly.

Solution or Workaround

The following procedure steps should help alleviate this problem. Please refer to Microsoft's Knowledge Base in the Related Information below for more information.

  1. Examine and verify that the CD-ROM is clean and is operable.
    • Take the CD-ROM out of the computer and visibly check it for scratches and other impurities. Wipe it gently with a lint-free cloth.
    • Test the CD in another CD-ROM drive. If the CD-ROM works correctly in the other CD-ROM drive, verify and possibly repair issues concerning the CD-ROM drive.
  2. If the CD-ROM works in another CD-ROM drive, the first CD-ROM drive may be dirty, broken or need updated drivers. Contact your systems administrator or contact the computer and/or CD-ROM drive manufacturer for any available CD-ROM drive driver updates.
  3. Download and install the latest Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC) available. Refer to the link in Related Information, below.
Note: One shortcut that may be available is to copy the entire contents of the installation CD on to the local hard drive of the target installation computer then install the software from the copy. This may not work if the CD-ROM is too badly damaged or if another CD-ROM drive is not available, etc., however, it may help decrease the troubleshooting time if the installation needs to be completed quickly.

The file "sprers.eu" is not being located. Given a bare file name, sprers.eu is looking in the current working directory for the file, and is not finding it. As such, isn't being assigned and all the other errors stem from this fact.

Try specifying the full path to the file just to get that working. Using should return if the file can be found at the location you specify.

Once you know the file exists at the location that you've specified on disk, then pass that path to sprers.eu

Your directory name appears to begin with a capital 'C'. Also, "Assignment 2 Part B" is not a directory.

I find that the path to file on disk is better investigated with whatever file explorer your OS uses.

Hi @ppines , it looks like your code was not formatted correctly to make it easy to read for people trying to help you. Formatting code allows for people to more easily identify where issues may be occurring, and makes it easier to read, in general. I have edited you post to format the code properly.

In the future please put code that is inline (such as a function name, like or ) inside of backticks () and chunks of code (including error messages and code copied from the console) can be put between sets of three backticks:

This process can be done automatically by highlighting your code, either inline or in a chunk, and clicking the button on the toolbar of the reply window!

This will help keep our community tidy and help you get the help you are looking for!

For more information, please take a look at the community's FAQ on formating code

Additionally, it is extremely hard to help debug code and/or error messages when screenshots are posted. Posting screenshots, instead of actual code/error messages, is likely to decrease your chances of getting the help you are looking for in general. Instead of posting a screenshot, please copy and paste the code and error message and format the pasted code/error messages as shown above.

You're accessing RStudio remotely. That's useful to know. That means your local file browser won't be helpful for verifying the location of the data file.

What is the result of the following code for you?

Looks like you're sourcing the R file directly. That should run it in the global env by default, and that may be why it's not reading the NIRData from the environment listed in the UI tab as you're expecting.

Thanks for the feedback, I also thought it would run it in the global env by default, as per my other files. I tried both codes as per your suggestion and received "FALSE" in both cases. I just find it odd that the file is in the global environment but can't be read/found.

Thank you all for your very helpful advice. I have deleted the file and started again as I believe the source file was corrupted. I have uploaded it once again and it was read into the global environment successfully.

Yes a is important, and you were close! but there were some issues. Did you only have issues reading the file when trying to render the ? If so, this is because can not read files from your computer. This is done, because if someone copies and pastes your code, they will not be able to read the file.

From there, everything else produced errors because the dataset did not exist. There are several ways to share data in a but unfortunately, reading them from a file is not one of them.

As for the code formatting, that is a separate thing. That is strictly an aesthetic thing to make your code readable on this site. If you render a reprex with the package than it should save the output to your clipboard which will be correctly formatted when you paste it here. However, if you copy and paste the output yourself than you will need to take care of the formatting as I mentioned in my previous comment!

Hello -

Hopefully you've had some success on getting the updates installed.  I encountered this same error when trying to upgrade the adobe reader.  Same syntax and all, but the path name was a little longer and it was trying to access the sprers.eu file.  Trial and error and going through various possible solutions (running as Admin, running under a different user, re-downloading the entire install package, etc) the solution, at least in my case was to locate the installation folder where this file is contained.  This basically is your entire "Setup" folder per say for Reader itself.  Select the folder, and copy the folder and all it's contents, to another directory, in my case, I just copied it directly to my desktop.  I then opened that folder, and ran the sprers.eu file.  And That's all she wrote installation went without a hitch !!

Hope this helps

AutoCAD

Issue:

During the installation of an Autodesk product, the following error message or one similar to it appears:

Error Error reading from file: C:\Users\Verify that the file exists and that you can access it

sprers.eu

 

Causes:

There are multiple potential causes for this error:
  • Insufficient permissions to the destination folder in which the product is being installed.
  • The path to either the source folder or the destination folder has more than characters.
  • Compromised product installation package.

Solution:

To check and correct user permissions

  1. Locate the folder in which your Autodesk product is being installed (the default path C:\Program Files\Autodesk\).

  2. Right-click the folder and select Properties.

  3. If your name or the name of your user group is not listed under Group or user names, click Edit and add your name or group.

  4. If Full Control is not selected under Permissions for SYSTEM, click Edit and select Full Control.

  5. Click Apply or OK to save your edits.

  6. Try to install again.

To check and shorten the file path length

  1. Check the number of characters in the full Windows path  to the source folder containing the files from which you’re installing. Also check the number of characters in the path leading to the destination folder in which you’re installing the product.

Note: You can copy the path into a Word file and select Review tab > Word Count to see the number of words and characters.

  1. If either path is longer than characters, shorten it. One way to shorten the path to the source folder is to run the product installer from a folder on your C drive rather than from your desktop. For example, run the product installer from C:\Autodesk.

Download the complete installation package of your Autodesk software

  1. Download and install the software from the Autodesk Account using Browser Download or from the Virtual Agent.
  2. Follow General installation workflow for Autodesk Products.

Thanks! Was advised to used "reprex", error reading file. What you see is a reprex

grosscol:

lower_path <- sprers.eu("cloud","project","sprers.eu") sprers.eu(lower_path)

Thanks for the feedback, I also thought it would run it in the global env by default, as per my other files. I tried both codes as per your suggestion and received "FALSE" in both cases. I just find it odd that the file is in the global environment but can't be read/found.

Thank you all for your very helpful advice. I have deleted the file and started again as I believe the source file was corrupted. I have uploaded it once again and it was read into the global environment successfully.

Yes a is important, and you were close! but there were some issues. Did you only have issues reading the file when trying to render the ? If so, this is because can not read files from your computer. This is done, because if someone copies and pastes your code, they will not be able to read the file.

From there, everything else produced errors because the dataset did not exist. There are several ways to share data in a but unfortunately, reading them from a file is not one of them.

As for the code formatting, that is a separate thing. That is strictly an aesthetic thing to make your code readable on this site. If you render a reprex with the package than it should save the output to your clipboard which will be correctly formatted when you paste it here. However, if you copy and paste the output yourself than you will need to take care of the formatting as I mentioned in my previous comment!

Thanks for your feedback.

Hello -

Hopefully you've had some success on getting the updates installed.  I encountered this same error when trying to upgrade the adobe reader.  Same syntax and all, but the path name was a little longer and it was trying to access the sprers.eu file.  Trial and error and going through various possible solutions (running as Admin, running under a different user, re-downloading the entire install package, error reading file, etc) the solution, at least in my case was to locate the installation folder where this file is contained.  This basically is your entire "Setup" folder per say for Reader itself.  Select the folder, error reading file, and copy the folder and all it's contents, to error reading file directory, in my case, I just copied it directly to my desktop.  I then opened that folder, and ran the sprers.eu file.  And That's all she wrote installation went without a hitch !!

Hope this helps

Copying the files to some other folder (with permissions to access/run files) solved my problem. I copied the entire disk to the root of a disk partition (say D drive).
