Clicker 7

Error: "Trying to find network..." (Clicker 7)

You receive the following error message on launch:
Trying to find network...


This error message indicates that Clicker 7 can't connect to the Shared Clicker Files folder on your network.

You can click Disconnect or wait 30 seconds for Clicker 7 to stop trying. You can continue to use Clicker 7, however:

  • By default, your files will be saved to the computer instead of the network.
  • Your Classes and Users will be missing from the Quick Start window.
  • The Word Pool won't be editable (but will still work).

To resolve the problem, please contact your IT Support.


The Shared Clicker Files folder is the default open / save location in Clicker 7.

In standalone installations, the location is: C:\Users\Public\Documents\Clicker

In a network installation, all computers point to a single network share. The location is chosen during the network setup on the server (prior to generating the MSI package).

The location is stored in the SharedFiles value in the following Registry key on each computer:

32bit Windows: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Crick\Clicker7
64bit Windows: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Crick\Clicker7

This can be modified freely. For best results, we recommend supplying a UNC path to a non-hidden network share that users have read / write access to.
