Error - 'must be installed in root directory'

Hi Achim, have already messaged you on Skype, but we have a couple of small problems with our ATCC league (our first RACE league with SSP).

A couple of drivers are having the error pop up 'must be installed in the root directory', when it already is.

Any solution? One guy is on XP, one on 7.

There are 2 possible locations where the SimSyncPro.exe can be placed in case of Race 07.


  1. nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn

  2. In the folder where the "race_steam.exe" is located
  3. nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn

  4. In the "\SimBin\Race 07" folder under "My Documents". In this case, you need to create a file called "GameInstallDir.ini" in this folder and enter the path to the installation folder of the race game (where the race_steam.exe is located).
    e.g.: dir=C:\Program Files\Steam\SimBin\Race07
  5. nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn

Now seems to be fixed; running the game, then running SSP seems to work.

Probably because they hadn't run the game since the patch.

Thanks anyway.
