    Access to the path 'C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\Temporary ASP.NET Files\active\60824e40' is denied.

    Microsoft's Internet Information Services (IIS) does not have permission to access the folder Temporary ASP.NET Files.  The Management Console uses Microsoft IIS and Temporary ASP.NET Files to create reports.

    It's possible you have incompatible Malwarebytes software installed on your database server.  Some Malwarebytes software may conflict with the Malwarebytes Management Console, causing the console to quit unexpectedly.

     

    The following Malwarebytes software is incompatible with the Management Console:

    • Malwarebytes for Windows v3.x
    • Malwarebytes Anti-Malware v2.x
    • Malwarebytes Endpoint Agent

     

    To uninstall the incompatible Malwarebytes software:

    1. Download the Malwarebytes Cleanup Utility.

    2. Run the Malwarebytes Cleanup Utility.
    3. After you have uninstalled the incompatible software, restart your database server.

     

    To confirm the issue is resolved, open the Management Console and click the Reports pane.  The Reports pane displays the Management Console's status in place of the error message.
