Libcurl permission denied
« on: July 12, 2024, 06:49:13 pm »
Im new to Code::Blocks but have been using it for sometime learning through learncpp.com. Wonderful website.

Ive decided now that i want to create a project scrapping data from kitco and updating the price of gold every 30 seconds. I am using

#include <curl/curl.h>
#include <SFML/Graphics.hpp>
#include <SFML/Window.hpp>
#include <thread>
#include <chrono>
#include <Python.h>
#include "matplotlibcpp.h"


Here is my problem... I keep getting denied permission to access curl library.

Things i have done to solve issue --

1. turned off windows defender firewall for private and public networks
2. checked both libcurl and sfml properies to make sure i have full control
3. ensured i have proper executables inside my toolchain executables
4. updated my Settings -> compiler -> linker settings -> link libraries
to make sure i have all proper folders and files needed to execute
5. updated my Settings -> compiler -> Search directories
to make sure i have all proper folders and files, includes needed to execute
6. updated my Project -> build options -> linker settings -> link libraries
to make sure i have all proper folders and files needed to execute 
7. updated my Project -> build options -> Search directories
to make sure i have all proper folders and files, includes  needed to execute 
8. ensured my enviroment variables -> system variables
include all proper paths to curl library folders of
bin, lib and include
9. ran code block properties to set to always run as administrator

and yet i keep getting permission denied. Can anyone tell me why or how i can go about solving this issue? Help is greatly appreciated. Thanks everyone and happy coding on CodeBlocks!  ;D

Files under "C:\Users\kylem" is owned by kylem not by administrator.

You need to use web search tools to find out how edit the folder permissions.

NOTE: Running as administrator can cause weird problems under Linux.

Edit2: I would stop running Code::Blocks as Administrator; and give ownership and right to  "C:\Users\kylem" and sub-folders back to kylem most likely you have some things owned by one or the other and this is the cause of the problem.

Hi Tim,

Thanks for your response.

I am almost certain that i have my permissions set to read and writing ability for kylem. I have since then stopped running CB as admin. Right now i am unsure if kylem is the woner of both folders for SFML and curl. Below is a screenshot i took for visual reference.   :)

Please let me know any next steps needed to take, it feels trivial to solve but not sure why I cant figure it out or why ChatGBT does not know either.

I really do not have the knowledge to help you remoting; it is likely under advanced.

You might try moving the folders to be under another sub-folder; I never tried to build or use files on the Desktop; there might be some weird permission issue to that location.

Edit: Link to FAQs https://wiki.codeblocks.org/index.php/FAQ maybe one of them will help.
