It could happen that when you run the DocuWare.Tools.DWSystemUpgrader.exe tool and the simulation option is enabled you receive a message like this:
System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access to the path 'C:\Program Files (x86)\DocuWare\Setup Components\Backups' is denied.

This means the user who ran the app does not have rights to access this system path "C:\Program Files (x86)\DocuWare\Setup Components\Backups".
There are two different options:

  • run the application as user administrator
  • select another path (with enough rights) in the tool, for example "c:\temp"
