"System cannot find the path specified" error occurs when trying to export Workflow

When trying to export Workflow settings or Configuration file the following error message appears:

"The system cannot find the path specified."


The error message described may occur because of some reasons:

  1. Windows username was changed;
  2. Documents or other default user folder is not available (was removed or redirected);
  3. Invalid Registry branches paths.


  1. Windows username:
    • Open the Windows Environment Variables (go to Control Panel > System and Security > System > Advanced System Settings, click Environment Variables...,);
    • Check the TEMP and TMP variables values (it should contain your Windows username);
    • Correct the inconsistency between the values or try to change them to C:\Temp.
  2. Documents (or other defaults user folders):
    • Open C:\Users\%username%;
    • Create Documents folder if it doesn't exist.
  3. Registry branches:
    • Press Windows + R on a keyboard, enter Regedit, and launch registry editor as administrator.
    • In the registry editor find the registry branches:
      • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders;
      • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders.
    • Make sure that the correct paths for all user folders are displayed in the registry branches.
