Hi @Scott Roth 

Like the @Jeffrey Drumm told, the problem are because the Database ENSLIB are Read Only. The error occur because you are using the Macros $$$FormatText and $$$Text.

When you use $$$Text macro, the macro try to create a entry in the global ^IRIS.Msg. The global ^IRIS.Msg is mapped from ENSLIB database that is by default Read Only. See imagem bellow that the ^IRIS.Msg("ENSEMBLE") is mapped, but the root global ^IRIS.Msg is mapped to the namespace data base.

To solve the compilation error do change calls to $$$Text("some text", "Ensemble") for some think like $$$Text("some text", "MyDomain")

Click in Replace all

Then compile:

Hi @Punit Shah 

Use the method LinkToFile below a example.

C:\temp before create the file:

Execute the code

Set file = ##Class(%Stream.FileBinary).%New()
Set statusCode = file.LinkToFile("c:\temp\test_file.txt")
If ($System.Status.IsError(statusCode))
  Do $System.Status.DisplayError(statusCode)
Do file.WriteLine($ListBuild("Some bin data"))
Write $System.Status.DisplayError(file.%Save())

After execution:

You can use add or remove programs too.

  • would I be correct to interpret 'CacheC' in the example command as the instance name of the Ensemble installation to be uninstalled? Or is that the folder name on the filesystem where it is in installed?

Is the instance name.

  • Not familiar with Windows Registry editing, so can I safely delete those two trees in the registry if i want a completely fresh start?

After uninstall and if you have only one installation yes.
