Thanks for the reply Richard.

Yes, tried running from the desktop. I use the Ken Ray chart for folder naming by means of special numbers and that works well on my Win 7.

My Win 7 is the Ultimate version and he has the Home version, I hope that is not an issue.

I have tried setting permissions. I also set the permissions of the installer prior to running the installer.

Tried a simple "Hello World" one button app to rule out any issues that might be from my code. That does not run either.

I am hoping that if the netbook runs Windows then it should run a simple rev app.
