NiFi ExecuteStreamCommand Processor Create Process error = 5, Access Denied




I am currently trying to count the number of files in the directory. The command that I keyed to count in the windows command prompt is "dir /a:-d /s /b "D:\Testing\UploadFile" | find /c ":""

I am trying to use NiFi to apply the above command using the ExecuteStreamCommand processor. Currently I am facing the "Access Denied error" as shown in the picture.

Appreciate if anyone could help with an example and explanation. Thanks.

Note: the fileslocation set in the properties is the path to the file.
