I would rather run it in my own private directory c:\RT9999 and I use Set directory for that but it seems that if I dont run it as administrator it looks for the program in the windows32\system folder regardless.
So, then If I run as Administrator then windows wont execute it in the startup folder.
So, what i am asking is why does dbase need to run as Administrator?
Can we work around it? I already set directories depending on users.
