Access to the path ‘Google.Apis.Auth’ is denied while using UploadAsync / Upload

Hello All,

Today, I’ll talk about an error that had troubled me for a while until I found out the solution for it. I was trying to upload a file to Google Drive from a client machine and it was throwing up the Access is denied error message. I had no clue what had gone wrong.

The application was working as expected on the development machine.

After a bit of reading the Official Drive API v3 documentation, there struck a clue to solve this problem.

The reason for this problem is that the user on whose workstation the application is used does not have rights/permissions to access the %appData% folder under roaming which corresponds to: (C:\Users\your-user-name\AppData\Roaming) or Run and type %appdata%.

There are three steps to solve this problem:

  1. Is to manually set your Google Authorization Broker details on load (or wherever apt)
  2. Set the relevant Administrator permission & folder level permissions
  3. Run the application as an Administrator

Manually Setting Google Authorization Broker Credentials

On your code, before it reaches the Upload / UploadAsync request call, add the below lines of code for setting up the token broker.

‘ Drive scopes which is initialized on the main method.
Dim scopes As IList(Of String) = New List(Of String)()

‘ Add the drive specific scope to the scopes list.

Dim oCredential As UserCredential

Dim oClientSecrets As New ClientSecrets

oClientSecrets.ClientId = YOUR CLIENT ID HERE
oClientSecrets.ClientSecret = YOUR CLIENT SECRET HERE

oCredential = GoogleWebAuthorizationBroker.AuthorizeAsync(oClientSecrets _
, scopes _
, “LookIAmAUniqueUser” _
, CancellationToken.None).Result

TIP: There would be solutions available to download the client secret file from the Google Console into your project and providing the file location instead of using the oClientSecrets variable in the above code. But that did not work for me.

Once set and called in your application and after the Google account authentication, you will be seeing the token response file generated in your roaming as seen below:


After you progress from this step, you will have to provide the below users the Administrator access

  1. The user on whose workstation, the application is being run
  2. IIS_WPG (for some users, this was required, and for some this was not required)

Then you will have to provide the access to ‘Everyone’ on the Google.Apis.Auth folder in Roaming (%appdata%)

Lastly, you will have to run the application as an Administrator.

There are not many blogs or reads available on the web mentioning the solution for this problem. So, I thought to write this down for those who need it.

Your comments on the above blog are welcome.


How to upload the file to Google Drive and create a link to download in .Net

Hello All,

Today, I’ll talk about how to upload the file to Google Drive and generate a downloadable file link through .Net.

I am using VB.Net to do this. Create a console project or a windows form project in Visual Studio.

There is an important step to undertake, and that is to acquire the access of the Google Drive API through your Google Account. Below is the link that will guide you through the entire process of enabling the Drive UI API

How to Enable the Drive Platform

Make sure, that at the end you should have three details with you, which is required in the tutorial:

  1. Client ID
  2. Client Secret
  3. Project Name


Next, make sure, you have the Google Drive API v3 with you if not, you can use Nuget to install the API for you.

Link: Nuget: Google Drive API V3

Through Package Manager Console: Install-Package Google.Apis.Drive.v3

Below is the list of MIME types, that can be used with Google Drive API. Please keep this handy for the rest of the tutorial:

File Type MIME
xls application/
xlsx application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.spreadsheetml.sheet
xml text/xml
ods application/vnd.oasis.opendocument.spreadsheet
csv text/plain
tmpl text/plain
pdf application/pdf
php application/x-httpd-php
jpg image/jpeg
png image/png
gif image/gif
bmp image/bmp
txt text/plain
doc application/msword
js text/js
swf application/x-shockwave-flash
mp3 audio/mpeg
zip application/zip
rar application/rar
tar application/tar
arj application/arj
cab application/cab
html text/html
htm text/html
default application/octet-stream
folder application/

After you ensure, that the API V3 package is deployed correctly, write the below import statements.

Imports Google.Apis.Auth
Imports Google.Apis.Download
Imports Google.Apis.Drive.v3
Imports Google.Apis.Auth.OAuth2
Imports Google.Apis.Services
Imports System.Threading
Imports Google.Apis.Drive.v3.Data
Imports Google.Apis.Upload

Declare a Drive Service Variable

Private moService As DriveService = New DriveService

TIP: Always re-initialize the Drive Service variable, before you upload. It took me a while to realise this 🙂

Next, create a method by the name CreateService, which will hold your Google Drive Client IDs and connect to your Project Name. You can copy the contents as it is, and reply the place holders, with your Client ID, Client Secret and Project Names respectively.

Private Sub CreateService()


Dim MyUserCredential As UserCredential = GoogleWebAuthorizationBroker.AuthorizeAsync(New ClientSecrets() With {.ClientId = ClientId, .ClientSecret = ClientSecret}, {DriveService.Scope.Drive}, “user”, CancellationToken.None).Result
moService = New DriveService(New BaseClientService.Initializer() With {.HttpClientInitializer = MyUserCredential, .ApplicationName = “YOUR PROJECT NAME HERE”})

End Sub

Next, we will be using a PDF file to upload into the drive, you can copy the below snippet into a method or a function, as you feel appropriate.

‘ Checking if the Service is still alive, if not create the service again.
If moService.ApplicationName <> “YOUR PROJECT NAME” Then CreateService()

Dim oGDriveFile As New File()

oGDriveFile.Name =  “” ‘ Set your File Name here.
oGDriveFile.Description =  “” ‘ Set a meaningful description, I had set the same name as my project name
oGDriveFile.MimeType = “application/pdf” ‘ You must set your MIME type carefully. Refer to the MIME table above

Dim bArrByteArray As Byte() = System.IO.File.ReadAllBytes(“”) ‘ Your File Path from where you would want to upload from.
Dim oStream As New System.IO.MemoryStream(bArrByteArray)

Dim oUploadRequest As FilesResource.CreateMediaUpload

oUploadRequest = moService.Files.Create(oGDriveFile, oStream, oGDriveFile.MimeType)

oUploadRequest.Fields = “id”
oUploadRequest.Alt = FilesResource.CreateMediaUpload.AltEnum.Json

oUploadRequest.Upload() ‘ <- The file upload happens here.

Dim oFile As File = oUploadRequest.ResponseBody

‘ Setting this permission will allow anyone having the link to directly download the file.
‘ Google Drive, will not show any login page to the user, while attempting to download the file.
‘ The below two blocks are imperative.
Dim permission As New Google.Apis.Drive.v3.Data.Permission()
permission.Type = “anyone”
permission.Role = “reader”
permission.AllowFileDiscovery = True

Dim request As PermissionsResource.CreateRequest = moService.Permissions.Create(permission, oFile.Id)
request.Fields = “id”

If Not IsNothing(oFile) Then

sViewLink = ”; & oFile.Id  ‘ This is the link, that will be used to download the file.

Cursor.Current = Cursors.Default
MessageBox.Show(“Unable to contact Google Drive. Check your Connection.”, “Title”, MessageBoxButtons.OK, MessageBoxIcon.Error, MessageBoxDefaultButton.Button1)
Exit Sub
End If

And, that is it, your file is supposed to be uploaded to Google Drive, and a link will be available for any one to download. You can restrict the download of the file, by providing the emailaddress property of the file in the permission object. It seems to work only for the Google Email IDs only.

So, if you have any concerns or doubts on this tutorial, don’t hesitate to contact me through eMail or by posting a comment on this blog.

Error while choosing the input controls in SAP BO WebI

Hello All,

Today, we’ll talk about an error message you might get when you access the input controls for filtering your WebI reports for a newly created user or existing user. Below is the screen shot of the error message.


For a new or existing user, ensure that the user has all the desired access to Connection, Universe and the Folder of the WebI report. Unless the user has the access to the above entities it is not possible for them to get to a point where they can access the WebI report and extract data from it.

So, after the access to the above entities are set, open the CMC and go to Applications section (CMC > Application). In the list select Web Intelligence (CMC > Application > Web Intelligence).

From the User Security window, select User Security tab and click Add Principals.


It is in the Add Principals window, that the desired user is given the access to add.I had provided the access as Full Control, View On Demand, Schedule and View.

I hope, this solves your problem.




Adding SOAP Header to ASP.Net Web Service

Hello All,

In todays age of technology, where data-interchange between systems is imminent. In some cases, it is the application interacting with each other or in some cases it will be the web services interacting with each other.

So, today, we will talk about how to add a SOAP header to your Web Service Call. i.e. if you are trying to call a web service, from your web service and you need to pass a SOAP header to each request you send to that service.

Commonly, web service access credentials are passed along with the service request.

This article assumes, you have a knowledge of:

  1. .Net
  2. Web Services
  3. What is SOAP
  4. How to create a ASP .Net Web Service Project in Visual Studio.

Visual Studio IDE:

  1. Visual Studio 2013

So, lets get started:

Firstly, after your .Net Web Service project is created, right click on the Project name and click Add >> Service Reference


After you have added the service reference. A pop-up would appear as shown below:


Enter the Web Service URL that you need to connect to and click Go, to check the connectivity. If successfully connected, then enter the Namespace. In my case, the namespace is ‘ServiceReference’, and then click Ok.


The service reference will show up under Service References section as shown below:


Now, lets open the Web.Config file and edit few things there. As you may see in the screen grab below, a new tag is added into the Web.Config by name name system.serviceModel. It is here that your web service bindings and endpoint details are mentioned.


Notice the endpoint tag is closing in-line. Which means, it does not have a separate closing tag

Now, remove the inline closing tag for Endpoint and add a separate closing tag for Endpoint as


After you do that, add the below tags in the endpoint tag as shown below:


Now, the headers will be attached with each of your SOAP request.

I hope, this blog helps you with your problem.

Hello All!

Today, we’ll talk about an error which you will face, while using the DropBox V2 API with Objective-C SDK in XCode.

You can configure the DropBox V2 API, by following the steps in the official GitHub repository of DropBox at

However, while following the instructions to configure it to your XCode project, you will run into an issue while following to integrate the Dropbox Objective-C SDK into your project using CocoaPods.

It is while running the command pod install after you update the pod file with the below information:

platform :ios, '8.0'

target '' do
    pod 'ObjectiveDropboxOfficial'

The error that you will face in the terminal is:

: $ pod install

Analyzing dependencies

[!] Unable to find a specification for `ObjectiveDropboxOfficial`

There is a workaround for this, all you need to do is run the following command:

pod repo update

I had run this command in my project directory.

It will take a while (it took a good 30 Mins for me to get my pods updated-so please be patient), for the pod to get updated.

After which run the below command to configure the DropBox SDK to your project. Please make sure that your project is not opened in the XCode.

Below are the statuses while configuring the SDK. It wont take much time to configure the SDK to your project.

I hope, it works for you all.

Please comment, if necessary.


Error while installing Cocoapod or any Ruby Gem into OS X El Capitan or Sierra Errno::EPERM

Hello All,

Today, we’ll talk about an error you would be facing while installing a Ruby Gem into your OS X El Capitan or OS X Sierra.

ERROR:  While executing gem … (Errno::EPERM)

This is due to a fact that with OS X El Capitan and Sierra, there is a new security feature called called System Integrity Protection

Well, as I always say, there is always a workaround for your problems. And here is the one for this.

Open your Terminal, and type the below command into your terminal.

sudo gem install -n /usr/local/bin GEM_NAME_HERE

So, if you are going to install Cocoapods then type this command:

sudo gem install -n /usr/local/bin cocoapods

After few seconds, the pod should start installing into your OS X.





How to print a Barcode to a shared / network Barcode Printer using .Net (System.Drawing.Printing.PrintDocument)

Hello All!

Today I’ll talk about how you can print a Barcode or a generic text to a Printer or a Barcode Label Printer.

This blog post will cover the following topics. You can choose your familiarity and proceed to the topic you wish to know.

  1. How to install a Barcode Printer
  2. How to share the Printer
  3. Printing Barcode to a Network Printer

You don’t need to spend on getting a Print Server or a Network Card enabled Barcode Label Printer (which few companies would try selling you) to bring the Barcode Label Printer into the Network. 

Follow these steps to make it all work! Ensure that you have connected a printer to your computer and you are able to run a Test Print out of it. You can name the printer whatever name you wish to name it as. This is the most essential part to get it all working.

If you do not know how to install a Barcode Label Printer in your workstation, please follow the below steps: ( I am installing the Barcode Label Printer with a Generic Text Driver)


  1. Go to ControlPanel in your computer and click ‘Add a printer’


2. In the Add Printer Modal window, click ‘The printer that I want isn’t listed’ link. It will open up another modal window allowing you to choose the mode you want to add the printer.



3. In this window, choose ‘Add a local printer or network printer with manual settings’ option and click Next


4. In the next window, choose the port you have your printer connected. Mine is connected to USB port, so I am selected USB001 port.

TIP: If you see multiple USB ports in the list (which is normal), try to change the ports in the list and see if you are able to run a test print through that. I had faced similar problems in the past.


5. I always print barcodes using the Generic Text drivers (if you wish you change, you can according to your need), so in the below screenshot, I am selecting the Manufacturer as Generic and the Printers as Generic / Text Only. Click Next.


6. Select ‘Use the driver that is currently installed (recommended)’ Click Next


7. Name the printer as BAR or whatever name you wish to name the printer as and click Next.


8. In the below modal popup, if you wish to share the printer, click appropriately and give a proper Share Name. or click Do no share this printer and click Next.


9. You will receive a successful confirmation of your new printer being added into your printer list. If you wish to make it a default printer, you can check appropriately and click Finish.



If you have selected to share the printer in the step 8 (above), then your printer is already shared and ready to use.

If not, then please follow the below steps to share the printer.

1. In the printers list, right click on the Barcode Label printer and click Printer Properties menu item.


2. This will open up the printers properties popup. Go to the Sharing tab and check the Share this printer checkbox and give it a share name. I usually provide the same name as the printer name to avoid any confusion. And click Ok.


That is it. Your printer is shared across the network.

Like I said, You don’t need to spend on getting a Print Server or a Network Card enabled Barcode Label Printer to bring the Barcode Label Printer into the Network. 


Firstly, you will have to list down the installed printers in the machine that the program is executed. Below is the code, that lists down the installed printers and shows it in a ListBox.

For Each strPrinterName As String In PrinterSettings.InstalledPrinters
ListBox_PrinterList.Items.Add(strPrinterName) ‘ Adding the installed printers.

‘Find the Default printer
Dim PD As New PrintDocument
ListBox_PrinterList.SelectedItem = PD.DefaultPageSettings.PrinterSettings.PrinterName

Next, add the code to print to the printer

Public Sub prt(ByVal text As String, ByVal asPrinterName As String)
TextToBePrinted = text
Dim prn As New Printing.PrintDocument
Using (prn)
prn.PrinterSettings.PrinterName = asPrinterName
AddHandler prn.PrintPage, AddressOf Me.PrintPageHandler
RemoveHandler prn.PrintPage, AddressOf Me.PrintPageHandler
End Using
End Sub

Private Sub PrintPageHandler(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal args As Printing.PrintPageEventArgs)
Dim myFont As New Font(“Microsoft San Serif”, 10)
args.Graphics.DrawString(TextToBePrinted, New Font(myFont, FontStyle.Regular), Brushes.Black, 0, 0)
End Sub

In the above code, the asPrinterName argument holds the name of the selected printer. Argument text holds the text/barcode to be printed.

You should be testing it by now!

One Important thing to note:

Barcode Label Printers have their own programming language to send the barcode text to the Barcode Label Printer to print. I am using Zebra printers which enables us to use ZPL or EPL languages to send the barcode to the Zebra Barcode Label Printers.

Set Landscape or Portrait Orientation for a Single View Controller (Objective-C)

Hello All,

Today, I’ll talk to you all about setting only a single View Controller in a StoryBoard (with NavigationController) to either Portrait or Landscape Orientation.

So lets get started!

Firstly set the Device Orientation property of the project to allow Portrait.. Landscape Left and Landscape Right orientations.

Screen Shot 2016-07-24 at 5.14.15 PM.png

Next we point our attention to AppDelegate.m class of your project.

Copy the below snippet into your AppDelegate.m file. The below snippet will return the top ViewController in the UI Stack of the RootViewController


– (UIViewController *)topViewController{

return [self topViewController:[UIApplication sharedApplication].keyWindow.rootViewController];


– (UIViewController *)topViewController:(UIViewController *)rootViewController


if (rootViewController.presentedViewController == nil) {

return rootViewController;


if ([rootViewController.presentedViewController isMemberOfClass:[UINavigationController class]]) {

UINavigationController *navigationController = (UINavigationController *)rootViewController.presentedViewController;

UIViewController *lastViewController = [[navigationController viewControllers] lastObject];

return [self topViewController:lastViewController];


UIViewController *presentedViewController = (UIViewController *)rootViewController.presentedViewController;

return [self topViewController:presentedViewController];


Now add the below snippet in the AppDelegate file. This snippet will check the the current top View Controller in the RootViewController by its title.

And according to its title, will decide, what would be the Orientation of the View Controller.

In the below snippet, I have set the orientation to Landscape with a specific title and for the rest, I have set the orientation to Portrait.

A bit of a workaround, but it works for me.

– (UIInterfaceOrientationMask)application:(UIApplication *)application supportedInterfaceOrientationsForWindow:(UIWindow *)window


if ([[self topViewController].title isEqualToString: @”Enter your view controller title”])


return UIInterfaceOrientationMaskLandscape;


else return UIInterfaceOrientationMaskPortrait;


One More Thing!

Now lets point our focus towards the Storyboard. The above snippet / code will work only if you present your “Landscape” view controller Modally.

So, in order to set the “Kind” property in the Segue to “Present Modally”. Screen Shot 2016-07-24 at 5.30.39 PM.png

Also, it would be better if you change the orientation of the View Controller to Landscape by changing the “Orientation” property to Landscape!

I hope it helps!

‘global_asax’ is ambiguos in the namespace ‘ASP’

Hello All!

Today, I’ll talk about an error message, that I had encountered while compiling my ASP.Net Web Application, which nearly, compelled me to create a new Project Solution and transfer my project files into that Solution – Old School way of getting things to work 🙂

The Global.asax, Project Classes and Web Service references were all showing the error for ambiguity.


After struggling for 3-4 days to get my Project Solution working, I arrived at a solution.

You’ll have to delete these files from the Bin folder and then build the solution again.


I hope it works for you’ll too!
