Windows 7 Data Redirection

I have a Windows 7 machine running a program to store business cards.

The program worked fine until recently - Instead of the program saving newly scanned business cards to the correct location in C:\Program Files\Business Card Recogniser, it is saving them in the Program Files of a virtual store. How can I disable this feature in Windows 7 so the files save onto the existing database?

It sounds like you are utilizing a legacy application.  In the Windows Vista/Windows 7 generation of operating systems, this behavior is by design for security-related purposes.  Is it possible that your software vendor has an updated version or patch that is compliant with Windows 7 and will alleviate the problem?

As a last resort, there are some potential actions you can take to work around the issue:

I am definitely glad to know that the author's problem is solved, but I'm not sure that he took the time to read the suggested fixes within the articles that I posted.  What was stated by the author as resolving the issue was also described in the first article as a potential solution.
