Hi,
I finally got my W7 license, installed W7 on laptop and of course - installed Upp on it. The problems started from beginning.

  1. I cannot install Upp on drive C:/ - the installer stops at half progress and give me a message about writing error. I solved it by running installer as Administrator. It installed successfully. The second problem i guess is because of first on.
  2. I cannot save any modifications made to Upp sources because it takes infinite time, perhaps because writing rights (see point one)

index.php?t=getfile&id=2301&private=0

Is there any way to solve it? I think if TheIDE doesn't have access to a "system controlled environment" like C:/ partition than others applications made with it will not have access too.

Andrei

I think, I have solved this problem by checking something like "Run as admininstrator" in "Troubleshoot compatablity". Also, if the files are green, they are encrypted which gives additional problems to solve.

Windows checks if a program needs administration privileges in AFAIK two ways:
1. by checking the name of program (it should contain "setup", "update", etc.)
2. by checking requestedExecutionLevel in a *.manifest file.

So, this problem could be solved either by renaming installer to upp-setup-xxx.exe or by embedding *.manifest file in it.

Ok, thanks for explanations. If i distribute an application i cannot put the user to choose to run application as administrator so i guess manifest file embed in application would be the solution. Perhaps doing it for TheIDE too? Btw, i dislike how Windows manage user rights.
