Install E-Sys in VMWARe on MAc

Followed all the instructions, but when I click on E-sys application, I receive the following error message:

The directory for the user specific configuration files
"\\vmware-host\Shared Folders\Esys"
does not exist


Has anyone seen this?

Is there an easy resolution?

Make a mapped drive in Windows to the esys Directory. Then point the share in esys, see screen shots.

I am getting the same error as the OP. I used an external USB hard drive for all of the files pertaining to coding including installation of Esys (shown as the E: drive). Not sure why the software is not just looking for the necessary files on E:, but any suggestions on how to fix this? I could not figure out how to map a folder or if it is even the proper fix here. Is there anyway to change the Esys settings without going into the software? From what I can tell from your 3rd picture, you changed the settings from within Esys (which I can't get into due to this error - a bit of a vicious circle I guess).

A simple way to solve this is to delete the Esys folder. Reinstall. It will restore the default directory on the C drive. Then point it to the correct directory.

I just did this to install the latest version. It seems as you shared path is incorrect.

To make sure I remove the correct folder, do you mean the one named "E-Sys" to remove (full path C:\EC-Apps\ESG\E-Sys)? Although the error message refers to a folder called ESys as you stated. I cannot find such a folder anywhere on my system though to delete.

Yes, he is referring to the C:\EC-Apps\ESG\E-Sys folder.

For whatever reason, if I turn sharing off completely, it works. I then just connect the external drive containing the EsysData folder directly to Windows instead of via Mac and sharing. Seems like that is the answer for me (not sure why the sharing option does not work, but not a big deal). Thanks!

If you remove the drive you are asking for trouble since it may not map to the same drive. But it it works, done.
