Using WinXP, I installed and opened Timestamp 3.03 without problems when I was logged in as a Computer Administrator. However, when I switched back to my normal Limited Account, I could not use Timestamp. When opening the program I rec'd a message saying I could not write to Timestamp.ini.

After several tries, I finally logged in as a Computer Administrator and installed the program in a folder within the My Documents folder for the Limited Account. Then the Limited Account could use the program.

Is there a more elegant solution?

TIA,

Mike Wilkinson

Sounds like a permissions prob... as administrator try right-clicking on timestamp.exe, click on the security tab and make sure the limited user account has red/execute privileges. Do the same with timestamp.ini except make sure it has write and modify privileges as well.

Good advice, but the security tab is not visible by default. To make it visible, try this:

- When logged in as a Computer Administrator, go to the Control Panel and double-click on Folder Options.

- Select the View tab, and under the Advanced Settings (near the bottom), clear the "Use simple file sharing" option.

Thanks for the help wstarking!
