I am having difficulty getting the RAOB demo to run. I get "Run-Time Error '53' File Not Found. I downloaded and installed 3 times. Still no luck. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

tnx, Mike

Dear Mike;
Have you double checked to make sure that the demo is installed in the default file? I believe that RAOB installs to the C:/Program files folder by default. If you changed the destination file, the shortcut may not work. I would try a search of My Computer (Windows OS) to find out where the files are located, and move them to Program Files if they are not there. Hope this helps.

Cordially,
Carl Sidor

Thanks for your reply, Carl. The demo installed to C:\Program Files\RAOB56 and also created 2 additional directories - CROSdata and RAOBdata. I just tried the 4th download and install. I am still getting the same error - "Run-time error '53' File Not Found. Sure wish I knew which file is missing and why.

Thanks,

I am also experiencing same type of problem. If you try to start from the Start>Programs menu it tells you that the missing file is the RAOB.STM that would be on drive Z: ....

Tried to re-install or fix through new download and still ran into same problem

Any suggestions?
Thanks
Andre

Andre,

It looks like both of us are having problems getting the demo to run. If we can't get the problem resolved here in the support forum where do we go? I'm not about to spend anymore of my time on this demo.

Mike

I get the exact same error and I agree you can't sell a piece of software if you can't make the demo run. So much for RAOB.

I see a reference to the RAOB 5.6 Demo, however, RAOB 5.7 is the current version. The latest demo is available here ... http://www.raob.com/Downloads.htm ... If there are still problems, just let me know. Thanks, John

Post subject:  Error 53 for RAOB 5.7

I'm getting the same error.

I just downloaded the RAOB 5.7 demo and installed it in the default location (C:\Program Files\RAOB Program).

When I try to run the program, it just says, "Run-time Error 53; File not found" and quits.

Any suggestions?
