Resolution

Access is Denied is usually an indication of a permission issue or a configuration issue with the server. Instructions for WINDOWS:

1. Rollback
2. Ensure the user has full access for Clarity folder and to create a folder (i.e. if Clarity is in C:\Clarity, you need full access for C:\ as well
3. Ensure you always open the command prompt as Run as Administrator
4. Sometimes this also happens when permissions are very tight on this server , we recommend loosening them up
5. Reboot the server
6. Restart the upgrade and it should go through
