Sounds like you installed to the Program files directory and didn't force run as administrator on the program. Solution is to install to somewhere else or run as admin each time/ turn UAC off( although UAC off is a bit risky)

it works on windows 7 Wink (even on x64)

try to copy the install dir into another folder, for example another partition... not on your drive where the OS is... windows 7 has some security things which, programs which doesnt run on admin rights, not allow to access on the win or program dir.

i put my folder on E: which is an partition of my big HD... just try it Wink

hellow

[edit]

damn... too late Wink

but it isnt a real sulotion to turn UAC off or run it with admin rights, cause its a huge security risk and its annoying always click right, then admin etc ... Wink you'll do it

As already Said. It works on Win7 but if u have it in progrma files you will face problems with access. Its not UAC its rights to Progrma files director which only real Admin posses

You can install into Program Files directory and not have to right click > Run as admin every time. All you have to do is right click > Properties > Compatibility tab > Tick "Run this program as administrator" > Apply. From then on, simple double click should run it as admin every time.

never install stuff to program files on win7 if you can avoid it...
i personally have a separate partition for apps, and because it's on a separate physical HDD i get faster app loading times too, so it's a win-win situation Tongue

Wouldn't a better option be to set up a RAID so everything loads faster? Tongue

RAID-0 won't help loading times for applications really, since it will only boost sequential read and write speeds. It'll only have a noticeable impact on loading times for things like large map loads in games, where a huge lot of data must be loaded from disc to memory, or when dealing with large projects in Photoshop or some other professional application. Normal applications will hardly see a benefit.

Plus, if one of the hard disks fail, you lose the entire array, and there's no way to recover it, unlike RAID-5 or RAID-1.

What you'd want for normal applications is lower access times, which you can get from Raptor drives (which are 10,000RPM as opposed to the conventional 7,200RPM) or Solid State Disks (which have something like 0.1ms access times since its all flash memory, with no moving parts at all).

not having apps on the same physical drive as windows is enough of a speedup for me
