IV - Screen 2: Data settings

This part is a really important one, you have to select the "data directory". This directory is part of Association Subscribers Manager's install. The default data directory (the one copied on your hard drive at install time) should be selected by the wizard. This setting should be fine for you on Windows and Mac OS. On GNU/Linux based system, it should be fine if you installed Association Subscribers Manager from the Bitrock installer. In the other hand, if you installed it from your distribution package manager, it is unlikely for you to have writting permission in the data directory. In this case, or in the case you want to have a separate data directory from the installed one, you have to check the "copy directory to another place" box. Then, select the place where you want to copy the data directory (if the directory you selected is not empty a new "AssociationSubscribersManagerData" sub directory will be created).

Once you are done setting the data directory, click on the "Next" button.

V - Screen 3: Data settings (2)

On this screen you have nothing to do, it will only shows to you the result of the data directory checking. It will also shows the result of the directory copy if you choose to copy it.
In the case the data directory check fails, please be sure to select either the installed one or to copy it.
