I have installed latest .net.

Thoughts?

Make sure you have .NET 3.5 SP1 installed.

Check. Already installed.

Can you please share how did you check?

Add/remove programs. Also installed all the latest versions of .net :(

Do you have a 32bit or a 64bit machine?
Which operating system is this?

Sep 7, 2011 at 11:24 AM

XP 32bit. SP3. C2D.

Solved: To rectify this issue, security properties for folder (whole contents of files and folders) have been set to 'Allow' for 'Full Control'.

This allowed t he program to start up and run without a hitch.

Hi Jason,

Your observation helped us to get over the same problem. However instead of giving 'Full Control', you can give 'Modify' right which is more limited compared to 'Full Control'.

I'm glad that I helped you. Squiggle seems like a project with a lot of heart so i thought it was only fair that i posted my findings. In any case, i dont think a user will do too much damage regardless of Full Control or not... Not that it matters :)
