I have just tried loading Map 3D and as our Network is setup with roamable profiles Map is installing some files on the network. The problem I have is that the location the files are being installed in has a size restriction set which is being hit. Before I request our IT department increases the restriction I would like to know how much room is needed.

Roaming Profile sizes can vary from user to user. To get an idea of much space is required for a profile use Windows Explore and navigate to C:\Doucuments and Setting\\Application Data. Rght click on the Application Data folder and bring up Properties to check the size of the folder. This would be the normal size of one profile. The System Administrator can set a size restriction on roaming profiles. For more information, got to the Microsoft Web Site and search on Roaming Profiles.
I was trying to work out how much Map was trying to install as I was reaching the limit.
Autodesk Map is installing tutorial and sample data in the users My Documents directory. There is no way not to install this data or change where it goes. Our users My Documents directories are on a server with a limit of 20MB per user. I spotted the Disk Costing button in the installation and found out it needs 98MB.
You might just do a custom install and eliminate the installation of the
tutorials. Then put the tutorials on a directory where they can be accessed
on the network by anyone who would like to go through them?

I'm having the same problem - roaming profiles and limited disk space.
Has anybody found a solution?
Is there any way of avoiding the installation of those Map Tutorials (I believe it to be the MapTutData files)?
I have tried to delete the files in the MapTutData folder (after been given this hint from CadQ support), but then, obviously, the program reports that it cannot find the specified files meaning that the user has to click "Ignore" about a hundred times in order to start the program (and this repeats itself every time, even though all other user specific changes to views/menus etc are remembered).
All I need is a simple way of allowing users to start the program, without the program copying approximately 100MB of data to the roaming profile folder.
(increasing the disk quota is not a solution, as this is data that will be downloaded during logon, and copied back to server during logoff - one sure way of getting annoyed users
We dont use roaming profiles but I have the same problem. I dont want to store and backup theese tutorials for 500 users.
Is there a reason that the tutorials are stored under "My Documents" and not in the application directory?
