I am new to Magento & using Magento 2.1.7 in my windows system while running the following command in CMD

php update/cron.php

It is showing an error Update-cron: Please check var/log/update.log for execution summary

& in my log file it is showing this in the log

[2017-07-15 11:10:27] update-cron.ERROR: Cron readiness check failure! Found non-writable paths: C:\xampp\htdocs\magento_test/app/design/adminhtml/Magento [] []

I am not getting that exactly where is the problem with it.

  • please check this might be useful github.com/magento/magento2/issues/4911 Commented Jul 15, 2017 at 10:34
  • Check ur environment for proper permission Commented Jul 15, 2017 at 11:15
  • backslash is the directory separator on the Windows platform and php is using the unix forward slash seperator, both are valid in this case. Note that Magento is not supported under the Windows OS.

This error is solved!

For the others information such kind of error comes when the folder named with Magento is missing from the app/design/adminhtml folder.If you are facing the same error or problem just create a folder with name Magento in app/design/adminhtml

Thank You!
