Glad to hear that you solved the problem eventually. Vista is a pain in the behind. I've tried to make sure that it works, but it always seems like Vista manages to create new problems..

RegExps are really cool once you learn how to use them. They look harder that it really is. Just take it easy and make them step by step. Presets are not very difficult, it's just common rename functions grouped together.

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.
