|Asked questions on this answer:|
- can I also use DesktopOK on a terminal server (Windows Server 2008 R2)? Then every participant who is logged in there could save their own working environment. Is that possible ?
Hello, I have no admin rights under XP in the company (they are not awarded on demand). As stored in the Windows directory, so unfortunately the program does not work there. Will there soon be a version that runs with limited rights?
After each restart of Windows, I get the desktop icons shuffled.
DesktopOK (ran fine on XP) - seemed synonymous to run. Only when I restart Windows, the desktops saved by DektopOk are all gone again.
Can this be due to user rights (I am "Administrator")? Looks like Windows does not allow the writing of the INO file from DesktopOK (I had a similar problem msl writing INI files under Vista and also on Windows 10 and 8.1.
