Libprs500 0.4.34 problem with Vista

I've updated Libprs500 to 0.4.34 on both my XP desktop and Vista notebook. It works fine on the XP machine but not on the notebook, it doesn't open at all. I get the error message:

"The logfile ' C:\programfiles\libprs500\libprs500.exe.log' could not be opened:[errno13] permission denied: 'c:\\programfiles\\libprs500\\libprs5oo.exe.log' "

If I run libprs500 as administrator the logfile is accessed and the following is appended to it:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "main.py", line 827, in <module>
File "main.py", line 816, in main
File "main.py", line 131, in __init__
TypeError: __init__() takes exactly 2 arguments (1 given)


I've tried running libprs500 in XP compatibility mode but it makes no difference. I uninstalled libprs500 and reinstalled the previous version which works.

Hoping for help!!

Sigh, microsoft should be shot. In the next release you wont need to run it as administrator and hopefully that will fix it.

Will it fix the underlying problem or just access to the logfile?

Running as administrator didn't make the program work.

The underlying problem problem may be caused by running it as Administrator.

Well, you're not supposed to store things inside "Program Files"

True I'm sure Microsoft will say I should be shot. But I am astonished it doesn't work in administrator mode, if the only difference is a permissions problem.

keith, what you need to do is sort out Vista so you have write access to program Files. I know it can be done, but not how.

I've just installed Libprs500 version 0.4.35 and it works on the Vista notebook both under a standard user account and an administrator user account. Thanks Kovidgoyal for the fix.
