On Windows XP:
The application can only be installed by an administrator (as should be expected). However, when you then try to run it as a non-administrator it fails to execute. I am running in a least-user-privilege configuration.

I have tried this a number of different ways:
1)
I executed the installation as an administrator using the "run-as" menu item in Windows. I then ran the application as part of the install (the final step in the installation). The application rans well. If I try to restart it after that, it indicates the user.script file is missing.

Uninstall application and manually delete the directories it created.

2)
I log into the computer as the administrator and install it. I then log out and log back in as my normal user. When I try to run the application I get an error (appologies but did not capture the error message).

Uninstall the application and manually delete the directories it created.

3)
Similar to attempt 1... I execute the installation as an administrator using the "run as" menu item in Windows. But on the last step of the install, I do not run the application. Then I navigate to c:\Program Files\zdt and run zdt.exe I get the attached error log

If you need more information, you can contact me at mrachelski@gmail.com.

What I saw of the application was quite nice. I would like to get to a point where I can use it.

Mark.
