DBI Error – Path Not Found


If you get a message when starting Global\Offsider Estimating that says DBI Error- Path Not Found, then it is likely ESW does not have the permissions to write to the C:\ESW folder.

To resolve this, you will need to update the permissions on the C:\ESW folder so that users have Read/Write access.

To do this, follow the steps below:

1. Click the File Explorer icon on the Windows Taskbar.
