Error System could not generate internal.GlobalVariable file normally when launching test run via KRE

Hi all. I use Katalon on our project to automate website testing. I have purchased a Node-locked license for KRE. I use KRE to run tests on a schedule. I recently encountered an error after reinstalling the OS on my work computer. Everything was fine until after reinstalling the OS my tests stopped running through KRE. I get the error " java.lang.InterruptedException: System could not generate internal.GlobalVariable file normally. Please check your writable permission in folder:"
The tests are run on a user with administrator privileges, so I definitely have access to the folder.
When I run the tests manually everything runs correctly.

What I tried:

  1. changing the folder location;
  2. change the version of Katalon Studio in Test Run Type on which the test will be launched;
  3. updating the repository in the Test Ops cloud;
  4. delete files and folders suggested in this discussion - Loading Project and Katalon Studio is stuck at "Generating Global Variables" .
  5. Change the disk where the folder is stored;
  6. Upload a new repository to the cloud;
  7. Run different test cases;
  8. Restarting the agent;
  9. Reinstalled the agent.

How the error looks like:

  1. I run a test scenario through Test Ops;
  2. I observe in the console the presence of license check, boot, etc.;
  3. At a certain point I see the message “Genereting global variable…”;
  4. Waiting for about 10-20 minutes;
  5. I get an error " java.lang.InterruptedException: System could not generate internal.GlobalVariable file normally. Please check your writable permission in folder:" and Exit code 2.

I really need a solution because this problem has paralyzed my work! Please any solutions

Hi n.naumchik,

You could try to start with grant access/admin privilege (read and write) for the current user of the folder C:\Agents\Agent_For_Chat********* since it’s run through TestOps it’s might not recognize authority.

If this happens again, could you submit the bug via zendesk and send an execution log along for better analysis? I think this could be handle faster that way.

Hello. It helped me to move the agent folder to the root C:. It is important that there is no intermediate folder: C: \ Agents \ Agent_For_Chat is bad, C:\Agent_For_Chat is fine.
