Log files disappearing act
« on: February 02, 2008, 05:20:15 PM »

I bought a new computer with Vista today, and when setting up WME seomthing strange happens. The log files (ProjectMan.log and SceneEdit.log) can't be opened. Vista simply says that the files can't be found (although they are still "listed"). This happens both when the project in question is running, and after it has been closed.

Edit: After a restart the files are no longer listed in Win Explorer, so the problems seems to be that they simply disappear.

Thanks in advance for any help!

Is your project located in the "Program Files" directory? If it is, I highly recommend moving it elsewhere, because there is much stricter permission checking in Vista and normally programs are not allowed to write to this directory.

OF COURSE that was the problem. I remember now that I've read it somewhere. Oh well, lesson learnt.

Thanks!
