That window you got that asked "where is c:\roots4\pr directory" was asking you to point at either the ROOTS4\PROJECTS directory or to a file within that directory.
In a GEDCOM import -- especially one like the Evidence.GED which imports source templates -- the program looks for a file called V_STREF.DBF, which is a duplicate of the source template file (V_STBOOK.DBF -- or X_STBOOK.DBF if you still use ROOTS4 files).
If the program can't find that file during the import, it will ask -- but the "STREF" file shouldn't be in the Projects directory -- so I don't know why it was looking there unless the file pointers in your .PRO file said that the Source templates were located there.
To see if the import went okay, go to the Build menu and choose Templates, then Source. Look for any templates that have an exclamation mark after the name. If not, you should try reimporting the file and when you get the message "Where is ...." find the V_STREF.DBF file and select it.
Be sure that you have a backup of your existing data prior to doing this just in case the V_STREF file is not the one that the program is searching for. If it's not, selecting V_STREF might change the pointers incorrectly so you may need a backup to restore.
