Having trouble accessing knownfolders

    Question

  • I started noticing that my app isn't doing what it's suppose to do. So, I downloaded the following sample.

    https://code.msdn.microsoft.com/windowsapps/File-access-sample-d723e597

    Scenario 1 throws an error everytime I try to create a file in the known folder.

    An exception of type 'System.IO.FileNotFoundException' occurred in mscorlib.dll but was not handled in user code
    
    Additional information: The network path was not found. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070035)

    I should also add that I just reinstalled windows 8.1 on my surface pro 3 fresh from the image provided by MS.  So, I have not changed anything in this system.  All system settings are default.

    I should add that

    storageFolder.FolderRelativeId.ToString() = "3876847194711B4E\\Pictures"

  • I would recommend that you update both your Windows 8.1 and Visual Studio to the latest update available since you mentioned that this is a new install.

  • Already did. I'm uptodate. What I meant was I did not change any system setting.

  • It's not exactly clear why this is happening on your machine. It works fine for me on VS 2013 Update 3/4.

    1) Since this sample is a universal app, does the issue happen on both Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone app?

    2) Have you tried launching VS as an administrator, did it help?

    3) What version of VS are you running?
