An Error Occurred while using the BCP utility– data was not correctly copied to the server….

Vaidy Mohan has turn our attention to a very known error these days on Vista operating system related to BCP Utility error:


Normally we used to go to users in control panel, remove “UAC feature” checkbox and wait to restart PC………………

Beside that this cannot be agreed by some of the users, I personally also hate to wait! Vaidy suggested another solution, which is only right clicking on GP shortcut and run it as Administrator πŸ™‚

Thank you Vaidy for this solution.

    If I remember correctly, installing GP outside of the Program Files directory solves this as well, even with UAC on.Mark

  2. Thanks Mark, it seems you just provided another solution for the issue!

    You can run it as administrator, but that isn't a solve in our organization. The root cause of the problem is that when you run the GP utilities app it needs to be able to create a "temp" folder in the SQL directory. If you give your users write or modify permissions to C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Dynamics\GP\SQL\Temp, then it works.
