    You should use the cache locally if possible. Our users cant access c drive either (with GP).
    All you need to do is grant permissions to the folder for your pupils and the error should go away.

    Re: google earth msi

    Ok, that's fair enough. They have full access to the default cache folder but the error still occurs. Could it be the My Places path?

    Re: google earth msi

    Ok, the story so far.

    I've deployed the msi that ZeroHour created. Set the permissions on the c:\google folder so that everyone has full control.

    When I run the program as a test student I get:

    Google Earth could not write to the current cache or myplaces file location. The values will be set as follows:

    My places path: "\\servername\userappdata\tt.tester\Applicatio n Data\Google\Google Earth\"
    Cache path: "C:\Documents and Settings\tt.tester\local settings\application data\google\google earth"

    I click OK and the program starts, but I want to avoid this error if possible. Could it be down to redirected appdata folders?

    Re: google earth msi

    why do you use a unc for my places path?
    try changing that to the local path,
    e.g. C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\Application Data\google\google earth\
    Or just leave the default. With the cache permissions in place (which the MSI does automatically - or it should) does it work?
    PM me if you prefer to carry this on in private.

    Re: google earth msi

    No this still hasn't been resolved despite ZH's best attempts. I've been away for 2 weeks though so that won't have helped.

    I've tried it with Google's 4.1 MSI that they now supply and I'm getting the same problem, which is down to the fact that I redirect my users appdata folder to a network share using GPO I believe.

    I will be trying to cure this issue for version 4.1 with a transform. I will post results links here if I add notes to the google earth 4.1 thread.

    I have this same problem, GE 4 can't find the users appdata folder. However after the error message it does go on to work.

    Sorry to revive a dead thread, but has anyone got an updated MSI for Google Earth that they're able to link me to or send?

    Many thanks!

    PM me if you have any problems.

    If you download from me please post a message saying, just so I know how popular it is.
    If my MSI's are popular I will upload more that may be of use.
    thanks.
