Access denied in Vista

Post by wolluf »


I know 2.51 has improvements for Vista (32 bit) - but it still produces access denied messages, eg, when trying to create a new folder on Program Files - or copy to folder in Program files. Such processes work from explorer (after the usual multi 'do you really want to' messages), so I presume it must caused by the way Vista is set up (I can get round it by changing permissions - making myself owner, but that has various unfortunate consequences on other aspects of the operating system). I take it there's no way of configuring Salamander to get round this? And if not, is this going to be fixed in a future release?
