Where do I find the C:\ProgramData folder in which Adlib has been installed?

By default, Adlib is partly installed in C:\Program Files (x86)\Adlib Information Systems\Adlib\ and for the other part in C:\ProgramData\Adlib Information Systems\. If you open Windows Explorer and select the C:\ drive, you’ll always see the Program Files and/or Program Files (x86) folders. Directly underneath, you should also see the ProgramData folder. However, sometimes that is not the case because Windows hides certain folders by default, to prevent users from accidentally deleting important files. That setting can be changed easily though, so that all hidden folders and files become visible. Proceed as follows:

  1. Select the C:\ drive in Windows Explorer.
  2. In the menu bar, click Tools > Folder options.
  3. In the window that opens, open the View tab.
  4. You’ll probably find the Don’t show hidden files, folders or drives option currently selected. Instead, select the option underneath it: Show hidden files, folders and drives.
  5. Click OK. The C:\ProgramData is now visible and accessible in Windows Explorer.
