I installed XLights for the first time yesterday.  I followed the instructions on their website.  When I try to open XLights, a window appears asking me to select a show directory.  I reviewed the quick start guide and I do not see anything about this step.  

Is it as simple as I just need to create a folder to save work in?  Or did it not load correctly?  

I don't know if it matters but I am on a Windows based machine.  The shortcut on my desktop is XLights64

Its as simple as that. I would suggest searching you tube and watch Keith Westley's videos titled beginner seminars, or the xEssentials videos. I watched HOURS of those and it helps clear most of the questions up.

Edit: there is also an xLights Facebook group that posts updates about zoom seminars and things.
