welcome to the club ;-)

This is the "normal" (?) behaviour of windows.

Every file is write-protected after copying from off a CD-Rom.

Don't ask me why...

Maybe even Bill G. doesn't know ;-)

So.....this could be why my Win build never works but my Mac one does?  It is 
designed not to run from CD, but at the moment needs dragging onto a hard 
drive and running from there.  Would a stack the standalone tries to write to 
be read only by virtue of being copied from a CD?  What madness is this?  Can 
I set this property within a script in my standalone?

Hold on......I just read Jan Schenkel's contribution.  Sadly, I don't 
understand it.  Help anyone?

Best wishes,
