Issue Details

I downloaded the materials for the online TestStand training course. When I started one of the exercises (2-1 for Architecting Test Systems... and 2-2 for Developing Test Programs...) I was asked to run the Setup.bat file (Exercises\Developing Test Programs\Driver Simulation API). After running it, one of the folder failed, as seen below.


Ensure the folder exists and then run the Setup.bat file as an administrator. Right-click on the file, and select "Run as an administrator".
The missing folder will be installed correctly this time.

Additional Information

If running the file as administrator doesn't work, you can manually copy the specified files to the following location: C:\Program Files (x86)\National Instruments\Shared\CVI\instr\Driver Simulation
