PermissionError: [Errno 13] in python

Related searches

Just starting to learn some python and I'm having an issue as stated below:

a_file = open('E:\Python Win7-64-AMD 3.3\Test', encoding='utf-8')

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<pyshell#9>", line 1, in <module>
    a_file = open('E:\Python Win7-64-AMD 3.3\Test', encoding='utf-8')
PermissionError: [Errno 13] Permission denied: 'E:\\Python Win7-64-AMD 3.3\\Test\

Seems to be a file permission error, if any one can shine some light it would be greatly appreciated.

NOTE: not sure how Python and Windows files work but I'm logged in to Windows as Admin and the folder has admin permissions.

I have tried changing .exe properties to run as Admin.

When doing;

a_file = open('E:\Python Win7-64-AMD 3.3\Test', encoding='utf-8')

...you're trying to open a directory as a file, which may (and on most non UNIX file systems will) fail.

Your other example though;

a_file = open('E:\Python Win7-64-AMD 3.3\Test\a.txt', encoding='utf-8')

should work well if you just have the permission on a.txt. You may want to use a raw (r-prefixed) string though, to make sure your path does not contain any escape characters like \n that will be translated to special characters.

a_file = open(r'E:\Python Win7-64-AMD 3.3\Test\a.txt', encoding='utf-8')

  • Is Test a file or a folder?
  • @JoachimIsaksson It's definitely a folder, as we can see in the end of the error line. Make that an answer.
  • Test is a folder, the Document im following reads i can open a text doc using the following syntax a_file = open('E:\Python Win7-64-AMD 3.3\Test\a.txt', encoding='utf-8') using this syntax aswell as a_file = open('E:\Python Win7-64-AMD 3.3\Test', encoding='utf-8') gives me the same error.
  • By the way, remember to use raw strings for Windows pathnames, or you'll get bitten badly if a subfolder name should happen to start with n or b or any other letter that can be part of an escape sequence...
  • ok so the file was on a flash drive and the flash driver was FAT32 and my HD is NTFS so it was format conflicts >< doing it locally works fine, thanks guys
  • a ok Roger lucky for me im just about always on Linux except now lol ><, so who do you suggest i do it. btw Test is a folder/directory
  • @bennyboy Depends what you're trying to achieve by opening the directory instead of the file...?
  • This is the reason already described in the accepted answer from 8 (!!) years ago. What does this answer add?
  • Because this is barely an answer (more of a comment), and again, it doesn't add any new information over an 8 year old answer...
  • @Tomerikoo who are you? the one asking the question or so?
  • it is clear and concise. other may benefit in the future.
