Failed to Access Local File When Running WES7 Update Via USB-Stick


You want to apply a Windows Embedded Standard 7 (WES7) firmware snapshot via USB stick but you get the message Failed to access local file.


The firmware update fails.


Do not use a USB 3.0 port (marked by blue plastic in socket),

Use a USB 2.0 port instead.

If this does not help, the FAQ WES7 Snapshots "Failed to access Snapshot File..." may be helpful.
