Please tell me if this adds up.
With the Windows version of my software, I had been placing the startup
application in a Program Files directory and all the other stacks and
data files in a directory within the users Documents folder. This seemed
the easiest way to work around the Vista "virtual store" issue, so that
frequent updates to Rev stacks always ended up in the same folder (this
program automatically updates itself during startup).
This software of mine pulls videos into a directory in the users
Documents folder (via an ftp address). It seems that Windows Defender
(depending on the settings) could block those video files from going
into this directory. I see them uploading, but at the last moment, they
don't quite end up in the directory. When I turned off Defender (or told
Defender to exclude itself from defending that directory), the videos
First of all, does this sound like a plausible explanation for the
transfer problem? Is this what Defender is designed to do... stop this
kind of transfer into the Documents directory? If so, is there a better
solution to this problem than having to ask my users to modify their
copy of Defender to create this exception?
