Ensure that the 'dir.root' property 'C:\ALFRES~4\alf_data' is pointing to the correct data location.

Re: Ensure that the 'dir.root' property 'C:\ALFRES~4\alf_data' is pointing to the correct data location.

You have existing data in the database that is pointing to a file on disk that could not be found. Either make sure that the listed property in alfresco-global.properties points to a directory in which that file exists, or reset / clear your database to start from a clean slate (if this is supposed to be a new / empty system).

What? Every Alfresco instance should have its own, separate database / schema (can be same server, but properly isolated). Clearing only alf_content_url would never be sufficient. What other "development tables" also exist? Tables of Alfresco or are you putting in custom tables as well?

Clearing only alf_content_url will not work because those entries are referenced from alf_content_data, you cannot clear alf_content_data because those entries are referenced from alf_node_properties, and so on...

Well - then you'd need to manually drop the Alfresco tables only in the right sequence or with foreign key constraint validation disabled... There is a reason why it is not recommended to put custom tables in the same database / schema as the Alfresco tables. It is more difficult to handle administratively.

one more doubt in this.can we use install alfresco setup in different systems with one single MYSQL ??. May be that's why I am this issue ??.

I want to install alfresco in multiple systems in our development team with common MYSQL.

You can... Just configure the database connection in alfresco-global.properties accordingly and create a properly isolated schema / database inside your common MySQL server.
