Log folder issue
« on: May 28, 2013, 10:49:10 am »
Installed Pinkie V2.15 on Windows 7-x64 and selected  the 'make available to everyone' option.  When the program launched it threw up an error:

Unable to access log directory.
Access to the path
"C:\Users\Brian\Documents\ipUptime.net\Pinkie_Logs" is denied.


Since the author didn't have an account on my machine, that was not surprising.

Verified the program was working and then looked through Application Settings.  That same bad path is listed under MISC.  Win 7 requires a common writable directory to be in a public location with Everyone access.  As installed, the log directory won't work for any user.

Another tiny point: when you copy from Ping Sweep, the status message says "coppied".  Stood out like a sore thumb.

Uninstalled the program once while tracking this error, and went to the Registry to clean out any chaff - and found next to nothing.  Got to be the cleanest uninstall I've run across in a long time.  Nice!
