Well, I would say that you shouldn't have put Studio in that folder, but 
that that's not your problem.....There is another program that's 
actaully called WebStudio, and that's what's supposed to be in that 
WebStudio folder....but in anycase, what you need to do is connect to 
http://localhost:8008/mapguide/webstudio. If you typed in the latter to 
a web browser, then you'd launch the WebStudio app (assuming that 
nothing got overwritten when you installed Studio in the same folder) 
that I was talking about earlier. But that is NOT the same as Autodesk's 
MapGuide Studio. Hope this helps...
