- We've received some reports that users when loading the DVD-ROM for the first time get an error message such as:
Error=>Table 'cdrom_rrdb.country_list' doesn't exist
Error=>Can't connect to MySQL server on '127.0.0.1' (10061)
If you receive this error message, check and try the following:
- Make sure you aren't running any security software that might block the application from copying files to your computer.
- Be patient when loading the DVD-ROM for the first time. It takes about 1 minute (longer on some machines) for the DVD-ROM to copy files to your hard drive. If you interrupt this process you may experience the above message and have to clean up your temp files.
- Clean out your TEMP files, reboot, and try to load the DVD-ROM again. To clear out temp files, open My Computer and Right-Click on your C Drive and choose properties. Then click the “Disk Cleanup” button. Check the box “Temporary Files” and then choose OK. Make sure you check “Temporary Files” and not “Temporary Internet Files” - then click OK to run the disk cleanup. Then reboot. and go ahead and try to rerun the DVD-ROM.
Tips and Tricks
Running the DVD-ROM from the hard drive
