Exported log file cannot be opened



I used the Log.SaveResultsAs method to export the log file on my local machine, but when I am having difficulty to open the file. Does anyone know how to fix this?


Thanks in advance.

Are you able to move that file somewhere else, like to your desktop, and then open it?

Hi @Marsha_R , yes after I moved the file to my desktop it is readable now, but why it was not working in that folder? I used to store my files in that folder, and it was accessable before.

This is because exported log is in the MHTML format, contains scripts and is located on the netowork drive. Windows denies execution of such files by default. You need either to enable the file on the per-file base (open file's properties - the relevant setting should be somewhere there) or to search for the generic solution.


P.S. If you manage to find the generic solution I would appreciate it if you update this thread with your findings.
