Error messages

Top  Previous  Next

The most common error message is about not being able to create a directory (folder). You may get one or  more of the following dialogs:

 

 

ShapeToDxf-could-not-create-directory

 

It may be a problem of admin rights during installation, but anyway the solution is simple:

 

Create the missing folder (directory) yourself.

 

Why? Because that directory stores a history of your preferences and helps the program to associate DBF fields with SHP fields automatically when it recognises and previouly read in (or similar) SHP file. It saves you time.

 

You need to create the whole directory path you see. Here's how: Go into C:\ProgramData\ and then, inside it, create:

 

Ransen Software

 

then inside Ransen Software create:

 

ShapeToDxfV1

 

That way you'll have:

 

C:\ProgramData\Ransen Software\ShapeToDxfV1
