Application Data Folder Not Visible Windows

Article applies to:
  • Sibelius 5, 6
  • Windows XP


The "Application Data" folder is a hidden folder by default in the Windows XP operating system. Hidden folders must be visible to install the sound set correctly.


In Windows Explorer select "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 Application Data folder should now be visible in the "C:\Documents and Settings\username\" location and you can continue installing the sound set.
