AppData Folder Not Visible Windows

Article applies to:
  • Sibelius 5, 6, 7
  • Windows Vista, Windows 7


The "AppData" folder is a hidden folder by default in the Windows Vista and Windows 7 operating systems. Hidden folders must be visible to install the sound set correctly.


In Windows Explorer select "Organize > Folder and Search Options" or "Tools > Folder Options" to display the Folder Options dialog.

Select the "View" tab in this dialog and then select the option "Show hidden files, folders, and drives".

Click "Apply" and then "OK" to apply your settings.

The AppData folder should now be visible in the "C:\Users\username\" location and you can continue installing the sound set.
