Hello

I am trying to run a select into outfile command from mysql 5.6 command line on windows 8 and I get a permission denied error. I have run the command prompt as administrator.

I have tried writing the output file as:

c:\outout.txt
c:\\output.txt
c:/output.txt

This is the error i get

ERROR 1 (HY000): Can't create/write to file 'C:\output.txt' (Errcode: 13 - Permi
ssion denied)

This is a cut down version of the statement

mysql> select * from testdb.web_vehicles into outfile 'C:\\output.TXT';
ERROR 1 (HY000): Can't create/write to file 'C:\output.TXT' (Errcode: 13 - Permi
ssion denied)

thanks a lot

The default NTFS permissions on Windows is more secure in newer versions, try sending the output file to C:\Temp\output.txt or your documents folder (i.e., C:\users\%username%\documents).
