Operating mode in Windows Vista (and later)

If this function does not operate properly in Windows Vista (and later), check whether the file used is not found in one of the system directories (Windows directory or "Program Files" directory).
Indeed, in Windows Vista (and later), with the UAC mechanism (User Account Control) enabled, you must have the administrator privileges to handle and/or modify the files found in the system directories (Windows directory or "Program Files" directory).
Programming tip: To handle and/or modify the files without having administrator privileges, you should:
  • avoid writing into the Windows directory or into the "Program Files" directory,
  • use the system directory corresponding to the application (returned by SysDir associated with the srCommonAppData constant).
