RE: [dxatlas] DXAtlas/Hamcap - Vista
Windows Vista does not allow a program to write to Program Files directory.
If you look at the directory you will see Program Files and Program Data.
The data directory is what is used now. It is part of Vista Security. If
you force a program to write to a Program File directory, it will look like
it does, but actually behind the scene, it writes to User directory, the
logged on user, \AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\program name.
Have people tried running your program using the compatibility mode
selecting XP? I am running IonoProbe and I have a folder
Afreet\InonProbe\Data and also Text in the VirtualStore folders.
MorseRunner is also there. These programs run fine for me. I hope this may
help to shed some light on the problems people are having. My IonoProbe.ini
file is in the IonoProbe VirtualStore area. Google VirtualStore and you
will learn more.
Good Luck and 73,

For some reason, Vista does not allow the program to write to the
DxAtlas.ini file - perhaps you do not have sufficient privileges for that,
or the file has a read-only attribute - e.g., it was copied from a CD. The
solution is to ensure that DxAtlas is allowed to write to its own ini file.

Subject: [dxatlas] DXAtlas/Hamcap - Vista
I have been running DXAtlas/Hamcap for a number of years, with an OS
Windows XP. Never had a problem.
Now I have a new machine running Vista.
I reloaded DXAtlas but when I shut it down I get the message
"Unable to write to C:ProgramFiles\Afreet\DXAtlas\DXAtlas.ini"
I also get this message when closing down Hamcap, but the message
refers to "Hamcap.ini"
When I try to open DXAtlas with Hamcap, I get either initialization
error, or it tells me I need a higher version of DXAtlas, but I have
the latest. Also, I have registered this copy.
Anybody know what is going on?
Looked on the website but could not find any info.
