I tried starting FARR as administrator, changed the skin and closed it. Ran it again. This time the setting was saved.

A workaround would be to start FARR from scheduled tasks as administrator, so it doesn't require you to approve running the program. You have to check "Run with highest priveleges" to make it run as administrator. I just tried this and it seems to work. I set the trigger to start 15 seconds after login. The delay is not necessary, but should help general boot time a bit.

I'm looking forward to the new build.

Removed the portable flag. Copied over the FindAndRunRobot.ini file from my older Vista (which had UAC off) hard drive to C:\Configs\Farr and changed the values manually. It reads from that file correctly, but does not write to it.

I tried ProcMon with the WriteFile Operation enabled and I don't see FARR trying to write anything. Perhaps, I'm missing something in my ProcMon settings, but I'm willing to try any suggestions.

Tried the portable flag. I gave "Authorized user" full control, but still does not save settings.

I zapped the config directory and I think that's fixed the problem with the missing disk. I don't see that dialog anymore.

Any ideas on the configuration not saving problem?

Sorry for being away for so long. Family visiting.

Mouser, to answer your questions:
- No settings are being saved
- I don't see a FindAndRunRobot.ini file in C:\configs\farr, but I do see a FindAndRunRobot.ini.tmp

Also, a new annoyance: I get a dialog box when I start FARR:
---------------------------
Advanced Options: FindAndRunRobot.exe - No Disk
---------------------------
There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive Z:.
---------------------------
Cancel   Try Again   Continue   
---------------------------


I had a network path mapped to Z once, but no longer. I can't remember configuring FARR to do anything with that drive though.

I found ConfigDir.ini in "C:\Program Files (x86)\FindAndRunRobot". I opened it and added this line:

CONFIGDIR = c:\configs\farr

Restarted FARR. I saw that it created files and directories in the above directory. I changed the skin. Restarted FARR. It still opens with the default skin. I set the security setting to allow full control for all authenticated users, and restarted FARR, and still the same problem.

I am using Windows 7 x64.

Forgive me if this is not the right place to ask this.

I've been a long time user and can't live without FARR. I recently moved to Windows 7 and I notice that FARR is not saving my settings. When I restart FARR or Windows, it reverts to the default settings. I have the latest 2.90.02, which also seems a little odd, because the the version on the web is 2.90.01 in DcUpdater.

Yes, please, please, please!
10  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / How can I change the background color? on: January 16, 2008, 01:51:02 PM
Is there a way to change the background color in FARR? I'd like to have a white text on a black background?

I really like Rename-It. It's quick and very clean. It's open source but no updates for a while and has some problems with Vista.
