When you try to set up Micrografx Designer version 3.1 or 4.0 for Windows, you may receive the following error message:

Alert! Not enough Space in Windows Temporary Directory! Setup failed!


When you install Micrografx Designer 3.1 or 4.0, you may encounter an out of disk space error message if the TEMP= line in your AUTOEXEC.BAT file is directed to a drive with less than 3 megabytes (MB) of disk space available. This occurs regardless of the drive and directory specified for the Micrografx Designer installation.

When Designer sets up, it stores information in temporary files that it places in the directory specified by your TEMP variable. Micrografx has confirmed that its installation program requires at least 3 MB for this purpose.


  1. Edit your AUTOEXEC.BAT file and make sure that there is a valid TEMP= line.
  2. Ensure that the drive and directory specified in the AUTOEXEC.BAT have at least 3 MB of available space..
  3. Reboot the computer and restart the Micrografx Designer installation program as specified by Micrografx.
