Files not found when running Jupyter Notebook on DSVM RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am reading a text file saved on the desktop of the DSVM with python in Jupyter Notebook. I tried both // and \ for the path of the file but neither works. How can I fix this? Thank you.

  • Jupyter on the Windows DSVM runs as a Task under the LOCAL SERVICE account. This account does not have permission to access files on your Desktop. I suggest you put the files in a location that other accounts can access, like C:\dsvm. Then either / or \\ will work as a separator.
