So for the last week or so, i have been working on a project, and have been able to generate directions in the past. However now every time i try to generate directions i receive the error

"Failed to Generate directions. Network dataset does not support driving directions."

I did this several times, didn't work:
http://resources.arcgis.com/content/kbase?fa=articleShow&d=29034

The only thing that seems to work i just nuking my entire network dataset and recreating everything (which i absolutely do not want to do).

I have restarted ArcGIS, repaired ArcGIS, everything seems fine. I am guessing somehow my network dataset has become corrupt?

I am using ArcGIS 10

Since you are getting a message that the network dataset does not support directions then that is the most likely cause. Use catalog to bring up the properties of your network dataset and click on the Directions tab. What does it say there? Does it support directions? If not, you will have to change the properties of this and rebuild your network dataset.

What network dataset are you using?

See my earlier post and tell me if your network dataset says that it supports providing directions.

Without any details, it is not possible to provide any useful help.

The error message you are getting says that the "directions configuration file" is invalid.
Did you edit or change this file? It is located in:
C:\Program Files\ArcGIS\Desktop10\NetworkAnalyst\Directions

If you have not changed this file, then it could be some data related issue. It appears from
the screen shot you are using old 9.3 tutorial data. Can you use the 10.0 tutorial data
and see if the problem goes away.

If you are unable to generate directions on the tutorial data then I will suggest that you contact ESRI technical support so that they may diagnose the issue and see what may be going on.
