Access is Denied on Accessing PuTTY Connection Manager

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Not long ago I upgraded my windows XP to windows 7.  I recently wanted to use Putty connection administrator to connect with my Linux based hosting space. I wanted to use putty because it provides tabbed sessions for connecting to multiple Telnet/SSH machines.  Unfortunately, I’m running into a bunch of problems using Windows Home.

I  had stored the putty database file prior to replacing windows XP with Win7 and then I imported the actual connections in order to use Putty Connection Manager with Windows 7 Home editions. It worked great the first time, but when I tried to connections I started having problems. When I had multiple sessions open and closed one, Putty Connection manager also released another active connection and gave this error:

Putty Connection Manager

 An unexpected error occurred. 

Access to C:Program Files (x86)Putty Connection Managerputtycm.log’ is denied.

Check log for further informations.

Hello Whiteme.

Here's a useful tip for troubleshooting Windows errors.  If the error mentions something about not having the permission (e.g. "Access to the path… is denied.") to access or write something to a certain location, then the first thing you should look into is if that program has administrative rights.

To let your program have administrative rights, please do the following:

1.  Right-click on the shortcut of PuTTY.

2.  Click on Properties.

3.  Go the Compatibility tab.

4.  Go the Privilege Level area and put a check mark on the "Run this program as an administrator" checkbox.

Every time you run PuTTY, it will now have administrative privileges and will have no problem in writing to the puttycm.log file.

Dear Whiteme

 

You can use Puttycm with administrative privileges to resolve this problem.

  • Go to properties for puttycm.exe you can find this by a right click on the start menu or you can trace the file in C:Program FilesPutty Connection Manager
  • Go to compatibility tab
  • Check the button Run this program as an administrator on the privilege level section present at the bottom of the putty connection manager properties window.
  • Select apply and press ok.

Hope this will help. Also keep in mind that after minimizing a puttyCM, it disappears hence to resolve this you have to disable Hide when minimized feature in tools then options and then general settings.

Hi,

Please do the followings:

Go to the following link:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/puttymanager/

download the Putty connection manager.

Open this application

Specify the location of putty.exe and press ok

A window will open

Now, create a database to store the information of log in and host parameters. This is like the user name and the password.

Now create a connection

Specify remote server name

Enable ‘log in macro mode’

Log in into it

Select apply and press enter.

It will ask a destination, go for SSH or Telnet. This depends on the connection type.

Your work is done. Hope this will work.

Thank you
