Hi all, I notice on my new installed Windows 7 Pro 64 bits that some programs do not save their preferences (options), as when I close and run them again the new preferences are still the old ones instead of the changed. --------------------------- EDIT 20091122: I correct myself, only the file associations preferences the program can set are the ones that are not saved. --------------------------- I try also on another fresh x64 installation with the same results. Here is what happens with 7-zip file archiver (GNU-LGPL license), I am logged into an admin account, run the program, select Tools | Options | System (none are marked if new installation), press "Select all" button, then "Ok", close the program, run it again and recheck the Options to see if the file extensions are all still marked. 7-zip 32 bit versionOn the second run all the file extensions are still marked 7-zip x64 bit versionOn the second run none of the file extensions are marked !!! But if on the first run I execute it with "Run As Administrator" (right click) then on the second run (just double click) the options are preserved. A similar issue happens with Notepad-plus (only x86 compilation available), but this time the options are preserved only if on the second run I "Run As Admin" again. It seems more or less that the options are stored on a place were a user logged as admin cannot write on, and were the "Run As Admin" configuration is not located in the same place of an admin user. Thanks in advance.
