With some networks, the users' My Documents folder is mapped to a network drive for backup purposes. This is supposed to be transparent to each user, but it may cause your SigmaStudio installation to fail. If you get a message like the one below, this may be the cause:
Here's a workaround:
- Ask your network administrator to set up a local user account on your PC. Be sure it has local administrator privileges.
- Make a new folder in the root of your C drive, such as C:\haha.
- Copy your SigmaStudio install file to that folder.
- Log off the network and on to your local machine account.
- Run the SigmaStudio install from there. It should complete without error.
- Open your local My Documents folder, find and copy the new Analog Devices folder with its contents to C:\haha.
- Log back onto your network and move your Analog Devices folder from C:\haha to the mapped My Documents folder.
I've originally needed to use this workaround to install SigmaStudio 3.4. I didn't notice this issue with versions 3.5 up to Beta 3.74, but just now I had to use the workaround to install the release version 3.7. If you need it, hope it works for you.
