Bamboo unable to find the file

Build is running as a Remote Agent (Windows Server 2012) and the Remote Agent is running as a service and configured with correct Log on Account. The EXE 'streams.exe' is placed inside the path "C:\Windows\System32" and this path is mentioned under the system variable.


Just to cross verify, in the bamboo plan, I have executed the command "echo %PATH%" and I can confirm the path "C:\Windows\System32" is present. But when I call the command streams.exe in my bamboo plan it gives the below error message.


streams.exe is not recognized as an internal or external command

I have verified many times that the file is present inside the path "C:\Windows\System32" on the Remote Agent. To further troubleshoot the issue, in the Bamboo Plan, I have given the below commands.


cd C:\Windows\System32

dir /s /b streams.exe


But it gives "File Not Found".

When the file is present in the machine why Bamboo cannot list it?

@karthickmurugadhas Can you try to move streams.exe to another folder under a user folder and add that folder to PATH variable to see if that works for you?

Yes this works.  Any more details  of this behavior? I mean why Bamboo cannot pick/find files under C:\Windows\System32 when it is configured in PATH ?

I thought, it probably limits to access to system folder in order to protect agents

Normal practice, we should leave our custom executable in our custom folders instead of leaving there

@karthickmurugadhas Can you accept the answer if that works for you? So other people having the same problem will benefit from it
