      Thomas,

      Yes that was what had happened. I forgot that I installed version 5 first.

      I thought I had to install the version that I had been sent when
      purchased before installing any upgrades.

So if you installed NoteTab 5 as the folder name indicates, that version may well have been created before Windows 7 existed, so it didn't know about this problem yet. I'm sure NoteTab 6 installs correctly under Windows 7 and puts the user settings folders into the user's personal folders.
