  • FAQ: The current working directory is already activated for another System ID

    Problem: You can't start VDP Studio because you get the message "The current working directory is already activated for another System ID. Please choose a different working directory".

    This can occur if you use a new systemID on a PC where DirectSmile is already installed and activated.

    Solution: Here is a guideline what to do in this case. Please have your systemID ready.

    1. Open the directory where the DirectSmile software is installed. This is normally

    C:\Program Files\DirectSmile Generator

    2. In the folder "System" you will find the file System.ID

Name:	systemID.jpg
Views:	13
Size:	10.7 KB
ID:	985

    3. Delete the "System.ID" file.

    4. Start VDP Studio and go through the activation process.
