Dear Edson:

You do not specify the error EpiData Analysis gives, so it could be 
anything.  It often tells you pretty well what type of problem it 
encounters.  Thus, the answer to your specific question on the path is 
easily answered, but it may or may not be the problem.

In the top line you see Edit as the second icon from the right.  On 
clicking your get a drop down menu that lists among other things "Edit 
Setup (EpiDataStat.ini)".  Open it with single-click and it opens in 
your text editor.  If you write as the last execution stop a command:

cd X:\folder\sub:folder

Where "X" is the drive letter, and the rest is the location of your data 
files, this is where EpiData Analysis will go to when you open it next 
time (or execute now with F8 being on the line).

Best regards,
