Subject: Re: Licensing FlashRenamer 6.2

Most likely the program is unable to save its settings (and thus the registration code) when it quits.

I suggest that you remove your current settings, which can be found here:


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).

Windows Vista is a bit different. Because the setup program copies the settings to the common appdata folder, the files will inherit setups admin privileges, 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 privileges.


Remove the file "settings.dat". After this, start FR again as usual. Now it should re-create the settings file, hopefully with the correct privileges so that it is able to save the settings in the future too!
