Installing Adapters 41 on Windows 2003 Server OS

we are trying to load Enterprise Adapter 4.11 on a Windows 2003 Server but gets an error that the \activesw\adapters40\ directory does not exist under the current user’s "\documents and settings\ directory when we try to start up AdapterConfig. When we create the directory the with the adapters.cfg file the AdaptersConfig starts up but we cannot connect to any Brokers on the network.

Please advise
