During EzParts installation, the following error appears:

Catalog Configuration Dialog Box


According to the screenshot, all components were installed successfully, except for the electronic spare parts catalog Resources and EzParts software application.

The problem appeared during copying resources from DVD or USB drive and can be caused by the following reasons:
1) The Resource folder cannot be read from DVD or USB drive.
2) User does not have write permission to copy the electronic parts catalog's resources to hard drive.
3) User does not have enough space on hard drive to copy the electronic parts catalog's resources.
4) User received the message requiring the user to insert the next drive and it is not available.
