Startup problem: "...another directory for trail creation." - Huh?

Hi all,
I intended to try Creo Parametric (Trial) but on startup I get only the follwoing dialog complaining about no write access to "C:\win... \system32"

I really don't expect apps to fiddle in that directory but anyway, this isn't a very pleasant first experience with a trial software...

I have a Win 10 Pro desktop machine which should have no problems running std software.

I tried modifying the directory via the UI-dialog, but attempts to change can't be confirmed wit OK, and thus it doesn't stick, and I get this dialog everytime I strat Creo.

Any hints about how to get started with Creo?

You need to edit the Start In location of your shortcut to point to a folder that you have RW access in.

By default it is going to the install folder.

Hi Rolf,

System32 is not typically a folder you would have write access to.  Select the icon you use to launch Creo > RMB > Properties and specify the Start in: location, as Ben mentioned.

Thanks,

Amit
