Hello I have a problem. I just moved a software program from a machine with win xp to two machines, one with with win vista and another one with win xp. The problem is that the program does not work on the new machine with win vista because it searchs for an access file bd1.mdb which should be reached under c:\Documents and settings\Usernamex\Desktop\bd1.mdb The problem is that the folder Documents and settings does not exist any more win windows vista. Do you know any work around to solve this? Thanks in advance
I think you are SOL without the original installer program. Just because you have moved the original directory from an earlier Windows platform does not mean it will work in Windows 7. You should have known that Windows installer typically add files to other Windows folders elsewhere and it also write to the Registry.
Ok, but listen, I do not think it has any registry data involved because after moving the program folder to a new machine with win xp, then that was enough to make it work. So I guess the reason why the same procedure does not work in windows vista might be just the fact that win vista does not have documents and settings folder path. Any other idea? Thanks
