Vista: WoG 1.3 didn't work as usercakruege11/22/2008 - 16:09


if I install WoG 1.3 to c:\Program Files\WorldOfGoo I can't run the game as an user (only as admin).
I think there must be a privilege problem, it tries to write to c:\Program Files\WorldOfGoo\properties (which is evil).
It should write to C:\Users\All Users\2DBoy\WorldOfGoo\properties.

Please fix in 1.3.1

I think that might be a Vista problem.

When you installed the game I think it asked if you if wanted to do so for all accounts or just that one. I think you needed to choose all accounts.

Alternatively you could do run as Admin every time which is annoying but works.

That's no Vista problem.
The problem is that the game writes to a directory where it should not.
