No ideas, but I'm having similar problems with some (but not all) Vista 
customers when my app tries to *create* a folder in the users directory. 
  The app makes a folder named for itself, and then puts sub-folders 
inside later. The sub-folders get created but sometimes the enclosing 
one does not. I'm at a loss to understand why. The app is installed to 
run as administrator.

I'll watch this thread with interest. What's the deal with Vista 
permissions in the user's Documents folder?
