6.17 FAQ-19 What should I do when I see "System Folder Build Failed", "X-Function failed to execute" error messages?

Last Update: 1/7/2019

If you see "System Folder Build Failed" or "X-Function failed to execute" error messages in Origin, please

  1. Choose Window: Script Window from Origin menu
  2. Enter script below in the Script Window and press Enter to delete OCTemp folder so OriginC will use all new source files
    del -occlean
  3. Run script below in the the Script Window to clear the User Folder path value in registry and then you can reset User Files folder the next time Origin starts.
    del –path
  4. Close Origin.
  5. Restart Origin. Specify an empty new folder as User Files Folder

To transfer customized files from the previous User Files Folder

  1. Choose Preferences: Transfer User Files... to open the Transfer User Files dialog.
  2. In the opened dialog, choose Specified Folder from the Source Location drop-down list. Check the Recursive checkbox. Move files to the right and click the Transfer button.

If this procedure fails to resolve these issues, you may try to run Repair (you do this by clicking on the Origin "Add or Remove Files" icon in your Apps or program list). Make sure that you allow the Setup program to run to completion, then re-launch Origin and see if your problem is resolved.

If this fails to resolve the problem, please contact OriginLab Technical Support.
