    AllFiles capability error in epocwind.out

    In my MMP file i have these capabilities:
    NetworkServices WriteUserData ReadUserData

    My application uses the MMF classes which in turn use mmfcodec.dll.
    Looking at epocwind.out I see following error message:
    Code:
    *PlatSec* ERROR - Capability check failed - A Message (function number=0x00000016) from Thread Ikivo Rich Media Client[2000bbb4]0001::MMFControllerProxyServer62f43693, sent to Server !FileServer, was checked by Thread EFile.exe[100039e3]0001::Main and was found to be missing the capabilities: AllFiles .  Additional diagnostic message: \sys\bin\mmfcodec.dll Used to call: Entry
    According to symbian documentation at http://www.symbian.com/developer/tec...Capablity.html my app need not to have the AllFiles capability as I understand. The log message is produced only when I use the video class in the MMF API (CVideoPlayerUtility)

    So the question is why do I get this error message in epocwind.out?

    /Thanks

    Would this error actualy affect your application?

    Regardles of the reason, the error could in fact be absorbed by the mmfcodec.dll code which then might have an alternative way of handling your request.

    Note that this message is about accessing a file, and not about using any MMF stuff. So where is the file which you are trying to play? I do not know for sure, but multimedia stuff is handled by the Multimedia Server, which is a separate process. It is not sure that this server can access data caged directories, for example your private folder.
