Microsoft Edge data directory error

Some users encounter a problem with the Edge-based web browser when starting Macaos Enterprise.

This results in an error message like:

Can't read data directory

This error is really a system error, and the solution may depend on your user configuration. Try the following:

  • Close Macaos Enterprise, delete the folder (data directory) listed in the error message, and then run Macaos Enterprise as a normal user.
  • Try running Macaos Enterprise as an administrator
  • Try a complete reinstall, possibly to a folder where you have complete read/write privileges.

If none of these work, you may need to get help from your IT department.
