Issue/Introduction

Installed CA Harvest Client 12.5 on new desktop, and it is not connecting to Harvest Broker R13, but it will connect to Harvest Broker R12.5 . I am getting the following error: C:\Users\<userid>\.cascm\workspace\.metadata\.plugins\com.ca.harvest.workbench\.harcontext (Access is denied) . I am able to connect on a different desktop, with the same Client 12.5, to Harvest Server R13, with no issues. It seems to be just my desktop. I have the same security permissions on both desktops. I want to see if I can be pointed to the right direction.

Environment

CA Harvest SCM 12.5 Client on Windows 10 workstation

Cause

There was an unidentified corruption in his .cascm folder.  Deleting or renaming this folder, then restarting Workbench caused a new .cascm folder to be created.

Resolution

Went to C:\Users\ folder and renamed ".cascm" folder to "old.cascm". Then restarted Workbench. This caused a new .cascm folder to be created, and resolved the problem.
