My app can't write to its INI file in Windows 7 64-bit environment
Posted on 2014-04-08
Hi guys, me again pestering you right away with another question sort of related to my last one. In the last one, we solved how/where to write my 32-bit Windows\System32 files on a 64 bit machine. I've discovered another issue on my user's 64 bit system - a very innocent .ini file (just a notepad text file) that my installation writes to the user's application installation folder cannot be written to by my app. It gives a "File Access Denied" EInOutError Delphi exception error. Everything works fine here in my 32-bit Win XP development environment, but on my user's 64 bit system (Windows 7), my app can't even do a simple write to this INI text file on his system.
