Subject: Re: Can't rename with 6.2

Date: Thu, 11 Jun 2009 10:44:51 +0200

I can't actually see any problems there. The easiest way would probably be to remove the settings to start over again:


Flash Renamer stores its settings in the "common appdata" folder (typcally %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\RL Vision\Flash Renamer\). All users share these settings (except in Vista, see below). Settings will be kept even if you update Flash Renamer.

Note: Versions up to 5.1 stored the settings in the Windows registry, and all users had unique settings. Versions 5.2 and above do not store anything in the registry.

Windows Vista

Windows Vista is a bit different. Because the setup program copies the settings to the common appdata folder, the files will inherit setups admin privelidges, so only a real admin (ie with UAC turned off) will be able to modify them. Vista has a solution called Virtualizing that will automatically make copies of the files to a VistualStore folder (typically %userprofile%\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\RL Vision\Flash Renamer\). This means that all users will have unique settings. If you don't like this, you can change the read/write privileges on the original files (typically stored in C:\ProgramData\RL Vision\Flash Renamer\) and give standard users write privelidges.


Remove the file settings.dat

First you might want to open this file in notepad and search for "regcode" to make a backup of it.
