I installed NiftyPerforce with a 64bit version of Windows running VS 2010. This thing leads to the following message. Is it possible that the system does not support the program? What should I do?

 

Could not find p4 exe installed in perforce directory.

 

NiftyPerforce Notice!

Could not find p4 exe installed in perforce directory.

Hi Olivia,

The solution to this problem is quite simple. You need to create a Symbolic Link to actual Perforce so that NiftyPerforce considers that Perforce exists in Program Files (x86).

Do the following:

Open command prompt and type > mlink “C:Program Files (x86)Perforce” “C:Program FilesPerforce”

Now the problem is fixed as NiftyPerforce will refer to the directory that actually stores the executable.

Hi there Olivia Talley,
 
NiftyPerforce is not fully compatible with 64-bit Windows so that is the main reason you're getting the error. The software is trying to find the .exe file inside the wrong folder and can't find it. To resolve a problem, you will need to 'tell' the software where to look for the .exe file.
You can make that quite easy. Click Start on your Windows menu, in Run field enter CMD and press enter. When the Command Prompt is up use the following command: 
> mklink /D "C:Program Files (x86)Perforce" "C:Program FilesPerforce"
 
I would also suggest you to check for available updates regularly as this bug should be fixed soon.
 
Best regards,
Drake Vivian
