We believe we've been able to reproduce the issue by doing this:
1 - we have a computer with two accounts, both of which are administrator of the computer.
2 - installation is performed as, say, account 'Stefano', who is an admin of the PC
3 - running Crono from another account, e.g. 'Maurizio', PC admin as well, fails, due to the lack of a settings file. When this file is copied manually inside a prescribed location belonging to user 'Maurizio', then everything works.

So, it looks like the the reason is that a setting file is not properly read under certain conditions. This is true at least on our PC...

So, we're working on two lines

a - recompile Crono with the latest version of Labview. We've read in LV's forums that the version we used so far does not have full Win7 support - it may work or not...
Up to now, the newly recompiled version for Win7 seems OK, and seems to be more responsive. This may also have implications for the bootloading software.
b - the next release of the Crono sw will properly check for the presence of the setting file, then if not present, it will create its own. Actually, the installer will not attempt to create it. This may also enable standard users to launch the program without resorting to 'admin' privileges. Not sure. In principle running as admin is not advisable, so we'd like to get rid of that too

I believe the new version will be released within this week.

We've made inroads in the new version of the Crono sw. Basically most problems seem due to the placement of directories.
We've reached the point now where as 'normal user', not 'administrator', everything works if the writing of the backup files is inhibited. The engineer working on this matter is now off work for one week, after which work will resume with the objective of releasing a new version within the end of next week

Hi
We've got now a version up and running that does not require you to be 'Admin', but is happy if you are a 'User with Admin privileges'.
So far, it works well with Win7 - 64bits, too.
We're checking and polishing a few things and then it will be released.

Regards
Maurizio
