As a form of a temporary workaround, you can create a map drive to the shared Windward folder by using the server's IP ADDRESS.

Step by step troubleshooting

  2. Ensure that the current Windows user logged in has permissions to read/write to the registry
  3. Check the firewall setting for pervasive ports on the affected workstation/s
  • You can also try to set “Windward” entry to have FULL PERMISSIONS to Everyone.
  • Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Windward
  • Right-Click on “Windward” / Permissions
  • Add button
  • Type “EVERYONE” and set FULL CONTROL

Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Windward\System5
