I have an application that requires the user to input a path for files to be saved. This path is needed by a number of other helper applications that run as exe files from the main application. In order to save this path, I have created an ini file in the application data directory. The main application saves the path to the ini file and the helper applications read the path from the ini file. This works great in Windows XP. But when I try to run it in Windows 7, the applications either don't open, take a loooong time to open, or crash, depending on their mood. Anyone have any idea what is going on here?
Any help appreciated.
