    A problem I have been experiencing with (free) NoMachine_4.6.12_1.exe (I even reinstalled the whole system thinking my windows installation had a problem). This happens on Windows 7 x64.

    I install NX without problem, try it – everything works (even between reboots). Then suddenly, when I login into windows I get:

    NX client could not create the NX directory .Please check for the home’s permissions.

    And on the C:\ I get the following directory (each reboot one):


    I tried rebooting, disabling the startup of NX services (in NoMachine Service) to no avail. Each time I get that popup (see attached pic) and one new M-127 directory.

    What I suspect is at fault:

    When I installed NX I was connected to my AD domain and logged in as a domain user. But when I moved to another location/network where AD is not available and logged in as the same user, the problem starts happening.

    Any idea?

    BTW: How/where is nxclient (or the program) that displays the pop-up started from? I checked msconfig and it’s not there. Disabling the service in services.msc doesn’t help also.




    It appears you have also opened a support ticket. I advise you to follow the ticket through. That’s because personal information might be exchanged which you don’t wish to be made public. Additionally, there might be issues involved which are outside the scope of the forums. Please send support the complete set of logs to support as they will request https://www.nomachine.com/AR07K00677.


    I am having exactly the same problem I am posting to see if there is a recommended solution.



    I have not opened a support ticket – only this post. Maybe someone else had the same problem?

    BTW: Take a look at the error message also:

    – There’s punctuation error – the dot should be followed by a space (and not preceeded). You might fix this as well.



    Weird, the text content is exactly the same. As a forum user, please submit logs to forum[at]nomachine[dot]com. They will be queued up for investigation. Make sure you use the title of the forum post as your subject.


    I also get the same error message on startup.  It looks like some sort of permissions thing, but I have no idea where to start looking.  And like Samo above, on each restart it creates a new directory.

    I’m attaching screenshots of the error message on start up and the extra directories.

    My environment:

    – Win 7 64 bit

    – NoMachine 4.6.12_1 (Free)

    – Logged on to my machine as a domain user


    Hi Everybody,

    Issue is under investigation.

    If any from users who experience it is willing to help please submit logs to forum[at]nomachine[dot]com


    Happy to help – which logs?  And from where?



    Both sides (client and server). Submit to forum[at]nomachine[dot]com


    NX had been running without this issue in version 4.6.4_5. After an upgrade to 4.6.16_1, I had this problem on every attempted start of the application. There are no log files as suggested in the link to submit.


    This domain issue will be fixed in the next update of NoMachine 5. Here’s the Trouble Report: https://www.nomachine.com/TR08M05944.

    Please use the “Notify me” to know when a fix is available.
