Cannot save or copy images in Windows 7

Running Scorpion under Windows 7 raises some issues that needs to be handled. People experience that they cannot

  • copy images to scorpion folder
  • save images
  • scorpion profile is not persistence

All of this has to do with the default security settings for Windows 7.  By default the user has only read and execute rights to the program files folder files.  Scorpion normally places images and profiles in these folders.

Fix to get Scorpion run like XP and Vista

The fix is to set Full Control right to the program files\tordivel as folder. You need to have adminstrator rights to do this.

Administrator right to shortcut can be useful.
