    When I try to run this program I get an error message saying "Permission Denied"  specifically it says:

    The logfile 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Gourmet\Gourmet.exe.log' could not be opened:
    Permission denied: 'C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Gourmet\\Gourmet.exe.log

    Any ideas how to solve this one.

    The windows version of Gourmet lags a little behind, and is not "multi user".  It stores and runs eveything from the program directory.  Now that windows doesn't run even an administrative user (even if its an administrator) this will cause problems.  There are two solutions, either run Gourmet as an elevated user (run as administrator) or go into the "C:\\Program Files (x86)\\" and change the "Gourmet\" folder to be "everyone" or "user" writeable.
