A public data folder

Posted: 03-29-2008, 10:08 AM

Does Vi$ta have one?

I have an old Foxpro application that used to store data in "c:/program
files/myapp/data". With Vi$ta, security becomes an issue for the "progam
files(x86)", and I need to relocate the data folder ....

You should be able to setup a file in ¡§c:/myapp/data¡¨ and have the Foxpro
application default to that file. I have multiple programs that save all
data to a different data hard drive. Have a great day.

But you need to turn off UAC to allow access to c:\myapp\data, right?

I haven't turned off UAC since early in the beta programs. One thing
in Vista that you may have to get used to is the security settings on
folders which may restrict access unless you allow all users. Have a great
day.
