What a mess. Whoever manages that web page needs to shape up. The number of screw-ups to the instructions is simply incredible: 2009 was wrong when posted, and now 2008 is screwed up as well. Somebody is just copying paths around, without checking to see if they actually exist on the system. This is simply inexcusable in this day of virtual machines.
Does one of these directories exist on your system:
- C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Microsoft Streets & Trips\15.0\Data
- C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\Microsoft Streets & Trips\Data
Try both of them, and see if one of them works. Note: If you're running a 64-bit machine, the second path will be Program Files (x86)
instead of Program Files
Steve, I'm not trying to be mean -- it's just that bug reporting is best when it is stated very precisely with no ambiguity. Here's what I would've written: "We've talked about problems with 2009 at (give a link to thread). I've noticed that there are problems with 2008 as well
. I've downloaded the manual construction update from (give link to MS site), and found that the path (give full path, not a partial path with ellipses) doesn't exist Any ideas?" Notice full paths, links to pages I've been to, and wording that makes it clear this is a slightly different problem from the one previously discussed.
