HomeStar Check WriterErrorsVista Problem - Will not run

10.5. Vista Problem - Will not run

For some reason the program is not pointing to the correct location for the data files. You can either delete the registry entry for the software, which I believe is under - HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\StarreSoft\CheckWriter

Then re-install the software. This may correct it.

Or, you need to find the actual location of the data files on your system. Vista does some funny things with the locations of data files, they can either be at:

C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\StarreSoft\Star Check Writer\data


C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\StarreSoft\Star Check Writer\data

or, even

C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Application Data\StarreSoft\Star Check Writer\data

If you find the data files, you can change the Registry settings to point to the data files. 

One other idea is this: Turn off the UAC control to see if it works then, it may be a security issue with Vista
