Error 7040

Verify the directory where the file is to be created is accurate and exists. If the file already exists, verify no other users currently have the specified file open. Make sure the user has sufficient access rights to create and open the specified file (if using Advantage “check rights” security with free tables).The error in your log indicates that either
• You don’t have full rights to the folder, or
• There’s some other interference (e.g., anti-virus) or
• The file doesn’t exist

The first 2 points are most likely. Please see this article for information on changing rights.

You can check rights (you may want to have IT help you) by trying to create and save a text file in your system folder (if you do not know where your system files are located, click File > View CostGuard.ini file, and look at the ‘System=’ setting).

You should also white list the entire data folder in your anti-virus software. Please consult that documentation if you need those instructions.
