RE: [Clip] Determining Active INI Filename?
- Thanks--that helps me understand the cause of the problem!
I have not logged in as a different user, but I have run clips from the
command line with another program while NoteTab is open. I did notice
that NoteTab retrieved a different AppData shell folder value within a
clip in that case, so apparently Windows treats the other program
running the clip as a different user name. In fact, I recall the user
name being something like "Local Service" on one computer exhibiting
Can you think of a way around the problem? I still want to be able to
run clips via the command line while NoteTab is open.

I've encountered this problem often. It is related to file ownership.
If you create an INI file in one user account, then try to edit it as a
different user, you MAY have trouble writing to the file (Windows XP).
In particular, if you create a file as admiistrator, and then switch
over to a regular user account, the regular user will not have the same
permissions, as the administrator.

with me, but if you know how to change ownership of a file, then that
may be the solution. "Take ownership" in the personality, that you want
Another way might be to recreate the file deliberately, using the logon
personality, that you want to give control to.
I'm fairly sure, that the problem is a Windows problem, rather than a
