This Zetafax technical note applies to:

  • Version 9 Upgrades


When users attempt to upgrade a version 8.0.1 Zetafax server, which has the Enhanced Security settings enabled, to version 9 or later they will receive the following error message.

Zetafax Server Installer Information, Error 1310. Error writing to file: C:\ZFAX\SERVER\ATTACHED.ZFG. Verify that you have access to that directory.


This error is due to an incompatibility with the version 8 security settings and the version 9 install process.


From this error message work through the following steps to upgrade the Zetafax server.

  1. Click Abort.
  2. Click Yes, then Finish to exit from the install.
  3. Using Windows Explorer locate the Zfax folder.
  4. Right-Click the Zfax folder, select Properties.
  5. Click on the Security tab, then the Advanced button.
  6. Check the " Reset on all child objects and enable propagation of inheritable permissions" option.
  7. Click Apply, then Yes.
