Why does Barca recommend that we not use the application folder for data installation ?

Hi Saoir,

That's because Vista doesn't allow changes to be made in Program Files.
So in order to avoid trouble you need to install your data elsewhere. :)

See also Barca and Vista and the dreaded mailto link.

a) The application is running under Vista, and NOT in a XP-compatibility mode, and
b) One of the data directories being used resides within Program directory

If both of these are true then a dialog box will offer to migrate files, as well as a manual link in Options > Directories will let users migrate files over.
Hope that helps. :wink:

Thanks Eric.

I went ahead ... :) ... and installed Barca in the application folder anyway to see what happened and it installed ok.
Then Barca offered to import from Outlook and I said yes. It then took 73 minutes to import the Outlook mail and didn't import any attachments.
However it has refused to launch since then.

So I guess I now have to uninstall and try again the recommended way.

I like the application folder as it makes backups much easier :(

My pleasure Saoir. :wink:

Unless you disable the UAC, you won't be able to use Program Files for storing your data.

That's the restriction of Vista with UAC enabled. :?

Yet another reason why I personally don't plan to move to Vista for as long as possible. :roll:

It's not so bad at all. I've been using it since some time and I like it, although some drivers and software still will not work on Vista.

If you don't like the UAC, disable it, but at the same time some protection will be lost. :?

I have vista with Barca (and Pocomail until now when I upgraded to Barca).

I have that awful UAC off.
When I first got Vista I tried Pocomail in my F: partition where I install utilities programs but it wouldn't work.

I installed Pocomail and now Barca in Program Files and the data & emails etc. in Roaming.

No problems, except I wish I had upgraded to Barca some time ago.
Best Regards

Yes, that's where your data get stored, instead of Program Files.
However on mine, data is stored on my other partition. :)

Good to hear it meets your needs. 8)
Have fun with it. :wink:
