Navigate to %ORACLE_HOME%/bin, check the contents of oracle.key file
It would look something like this


Search in Registry(regedit) for the above value and locate the following variable:

Check TMP variable value in opmn.xml (ORACLE_HOME\opmn\conf)

Check the complete path using Windows Explorer if any sub-folders  are missing, Check the disk space and check the permissions.

In my case, the sub-folder, “2” was missing. I created it with full permissions.

I was able to see the temporary files generated under C:\DOCUME~1\ADMINI~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\2 and Reports worked without issues.
