Running TakeControl 2.02 on Windows 7


just found this when trying to solve a problem with windows 7 which seems even more fussy than vista.

running windows 7 64bit

I installed by extracting the zip file to a folder on the desktop, then ran install as suggested.

all appeared as expected with entry in program files as described and folder on desktop with 4 shortcuts.

it did not work with dragging a folder so I opened a command prompt, cd program files\takecontrol
entered all permutations of

takecontrol d:\ (note filepath has no spaces in name
takecontrol d:\\*.*

takecontrol "d:\" (because command syntax shows ""
takecontrol "d:\\*.*"

I ran as the user I wanted to own the files with, which has administrato privs, (not administrator account)
error messages vary but an example is attached for example 2 above . Happy to accept that I musunderstood the command syntax or that I am doing something which is obviously wrong, but any suggestions woould be much apprecaited - bacause I have 100s of VMware files to transfer to my shiny new W7 system and would loose the will to live if I had to do each individually :)

happy to try any other test you may need

Are you running with System Administrator privileges? i.e. is your user account an administrator account?
