Error "Can’t get |temporary items path|" when running workflow.

Hi,

I'm quite new to Automator and scripting. I've got a workflow I'm working on which opens HTML files and extracts specific data from them. There are over 7000 files that need to be processed.
During testing, I used only a couple of HTML files at a time and the workflow completed without errors. When trying to process all of these files I get an error from the third party action "Dispense Items Incrementally":

The action “Dispense Items Incrementally” encountered an error: “Can’t get |temporary items path| of {action:item id 7, ignoresInput:false}.”
Can’t get |temporary items path| of {action:item id 7, ignoresInput:false}.



Could anybody shed some light on what might be going wrong here?

Many thanks in advance smile

Re: Error "Can’t get |temporary items path|" when running workflow.

Looks like this error was an OS issue, as it works fine on a clean installed High Sierra system.
