Problem with Vista, Windows 7
By Richard Rost   Richard Rost on Twitter Richard Rost on LinkedIn Email Richard Rost   15 years ago

I discovered yet ANOTHER problem with Windows Vista and my software. Well, this isn't limited to JUST my software. I've spent some time researching this online and it appears that there are LOTS of other software developers having this same issue with their programs.

If you're getting the error message "Amicron Movie Player - Course Welcome Not Installed" this is because Windows Vista is preventing my software from creating a folder to store your video files in. The "Welcome" video is unable to play.

This problem will also prevent you from downloading and installing any courses from my web site too, as each one goes in its own folder under the 599CD folder.

Run the installation program again (no need to download it a second time, just re-run the file you've already downloaded) but this time make sure you run it with ADMINISTRATOR rights. You have to right-click on the program and select "Run As Administrator."

This is due to the new level of security in Windows Vista that prevents programs from creating file folders on your hard drive.

Thank you, Microsoft, for once again making things tough for developers.
