      The author of the program is fairly old,,you should be so spry and writting programs when your his age and the program is FREE,.. Eric, the author, is one of the nicest persons I know and does his best with all his programs,, Again its FREE,, if you feel that you need someone to "BITCH" to bitch at me, I've delt with A.H. all my life and one more will make no difference...

      It's an old program. It's not setup to work correctly in "Program Files".
      Create a folder "C:\dumbstuff\". Tell installers to put old software into
      that folder. This should make everything work a little nicer. Then bitch
      mightily to the author about fixing the problem.
