The Specification set template file (FRxRpt32.tpl) is missing from the SysData directory

Got this error after installing an FRx Service Pack for a client today.  After searching the PartnerSource knowledgebase and eliminating all of the causes detailed there, it turned out to be a self-inflicted wound.

I had manually edited the FRx32.CFG file to update the path to the SysData directory.  The relevant section looks like this:

[SYSDATA]
Directory=\\servername\SysData\

Turns out the trailing backslash is very important.  I had set it to something like this:

[SYSDATA]
Directory=\\servername\SysData

By using Process Monitor from Microsoft’s SysInternals page, I was able to find that FRx was looking for \\servername\SysDataFRxRpt32.tpl, instead of \\servername\SysData\FRxRpt32.tpl.

So, if you get this error message, it could be one of the things in the Knowledgebase, or it could be that you just left off a backslash.
