[New-bugs-announce] [issue15946] Windows 8 x64 - IO-Error

Christian Mikula report at bugs.python.org
Sat Sep 15 14:57:40 CEST 2012

New submission from Christian Mikula:

OS Windows 8 Enterprise x64 clean installed.
Python Version 2.6.6 and 2.7.3 both x64 installed.

Problem is to delete one Directory and immediately after create one new with the same Name!

!!! Code !!!

import sys, platform, os, shutil

TEST_PATH = "/test"

print "platform:\t", platform.platform()
print "sys.platform:\t", sys.platform
print "sys.version:\t", sys.version
print "directory test:\t'%s'" % TEST_PATH

if os.path.exists(TEST_PATH):
if not os.path.exists(TEST_PATH):

print "success"

!!! End of code !!!

The error is only present if the Directory was deleted previously.

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "dir_test.py", line 23, in <module>
  File "C:\Program Files\Python27\lib\os.py", line 157, in makedirs
    mkdir(name, mode)
WindowsError: [Error 5] Zugriff verweigert: '/test'
