      This is getting to the verge of Twilight Zone (<grin>)... I have Win-7 Home Premium on my HP Pavilion dv6 laptop and it installed clean... it's what I am using now. SO now I'm REALLY scratching my head (gives me something to do while propagation is great for the rest of the US but POO here in Colorado).

      73 & see you on .233

      I've tried to force the install to C:\EasyPal,  C:\Program Files(x86), etc. The default is C:\Program Files. It does not matter where I point the install. As long as the error keeps popping up, nothing gets installed. I need to get beyond that error because the installer aborts the setup at that time.   It's funny that other programs install perfectly.  I have no idea how to stop the installer from trying to write to C:\Documents and Settings\K7EK, or alternatively to allow the expected write operation to happen. I am logged in as Administrator, and have run the EasyPal setup as Administrator. Turning off UAC does not make any difference...   I am starting to wonder if this is a quirk that is unique to the HP version of Windows 7 Home Premium, or maybe
      their support software that is also installed.  If I knew how to get into the bowels of the Windows 7 configuration, perhaps I could get this to work. I yearn for the good old days of the DOS command line with AUTOEXEC.BAT and CONFIG.SYS files, etc, where I could pretty much make the OS do what I wanted. The Microsoft GUI makes that pretty difficult, if not impossible. I guess that is why I favor Linux over anything else that's presently out there.
       
      Thanks to all that made suggestions. I appreciate it. The saga continues...
       
       
      Best regards,
