failed to open file in write mode -- unless Administrator!

    I've just installed KeePass on my wife's XP machine. I used the Administrator account to install it, and everything works fine there. But when she logs in to her non-administrator account, she can read the database but not write to it.

    Is this a design feature?

    This is not a KeePass problem. You have created the database in a location where she does not have permission to write files. If the database is shared you must grant all users full access. If it just her database you should move it to her "My Documents" and ensure the permissions are set to allow her full access, but no-one else.

    cheers, Paul
