When 4D does not have proper operating system permissions to complete a task, it is possible to receive a -5000 error code. This error code is "universal" across all 4D products. A -5000 error in 4D indicates the same problem as a -5000 error in 4D Internet Commands, for example.

To fix this error, ensure that you have set proper operating system permissions on the files and/or directories that 4D needs to work with.
