Compatibility Mode

There is another thing to try for compatibility issues. Sometimes, the first time a program is run after installation, it needs to create some folders or whatnot in the user profile. Even using the XP SP2 compatibility settings don't always help in such situations. For example, I ran into this situation with Lotus Sametime 7.5 (the IM program that goes with Notes and Domino Server). Right-clicking the shortcut and selecting "Run as Administrator" the first time I ran the program gave it the rights it needed to set up the folders it needed in the user profile. After that, it has no longer been necessary to do so. Obviously, only do this with programs you trust (duh!) but it's something to consider if you get fluky behavior from a newly-installed program. --Steve
