    Error Publishing: The directory is not empty. Re-Publish possible after failure


      Hi, I just purchased my Shavlik patch licenses yesterday, and went to publish my first updates, and got the following error in ShavlikPatch\AutoPublish.log:


      Mozilla Firefox 33.0 - PublishPackage 100%    AutoPublish    10/17/2014 4:07:15 PM    1 (0x0001)

      Error Publishing 'Mozilla Firefox 33.0' : The directory is not empty.         1/1/1601 12:00:00 AM    9613024 (0x92AEE0)

      AutoPublish    10/17/2014 4:07:33 PM    1 (0x0001)

      Failed to publish Mozilla Firefox 33.0    AutoPublish    10/17/2014 4:07:33 PM    1 (0x0001)


      I think it has something to do with the path on the workstation, but if anyone has any suggestions on why this error occurred, please share.


      I would like to try to publish these updates on the sccm server itself, but, unfortunately, SCCM thinks that these updates have already been published, despite the obvious failure in the log.  The updates in question show up in "published Third Party Updates", but do not show up in "all software updates", and therefore, can't be deployed.


      Does anyone know of a way to mark these updates as "unpublished" so that I can attempt the publishing process again?


      My sccm server is 2012r2, and the sccm version is 2012r2 version 5.0.7958.1203, with the latest updates installed.
