ActiveTcl Teapot can’t create directory permission denied (ActiveState ActiveTcl on Windows)
I was having issues trying to install Expect using ActiveTcl’s Teapot repository. Everytime I would run “teacup install -v Expect” it would give me an error that it couldn’t create a directory. For some reason it was trying to create the directory on my employer’s users folder on their network file share. This is mostly a future reminder for myself, but hopefully someone having this issue will stumble across this. You can see where it is trying to save these files to by running:
teacup cache status
To change the cache folder run “teacup cache on [dir]”. For example I ran:
teacup cache on C:/Tcl/lib/teapot/indexcache
After you run that command to change the cache directory, you should be able to install tcl packages using Teacup.
