MED-V v1: Error Message – “Path is not of a Legal Form” when trying to Pack an Image.
When you attempt to pack an image in the MED-V management console, you get the following error:
- Operation failed, please try again later.
- Error Details: Path is not of a legal form
This can happen if the “PackedImages” sub-directory does not exist beneath the client-side image repository root folder. If you examine the diagnostic logs, you will also notice something similar to the following in the Imagestore.txt file:
- Folder PATH listing
- Volume serial number is 00000002 2026:EB79
- C:\MED-V IMAGES\
- Invalid path – \MED-V IMAGES\
- No subfolders exist
If the PackedImages subfolder does not exist, you will get this error as well.
The solution is to manually create the PackedImages directory beneath the MED-V image repository root. The default location on the client is C:\MED-V Images.
