Moving one of my licenses to a new computer here. Windows 10, x64, more than capable machine. I install, choose my E drive (even tried letting it go to default C), it starts to install, quickly pops up the VC++ 2015, pops out of it, continues to install, figures it's done when bar is only about 80% full. When I try and run the supposedly installed program (no errors whatsoever), I get 'error' after error: "Error Write File - Can't write to C:\Users\[insert path]", Can Not Delete Folder At - C:\Users\..., Error (just a plain Error with no info), Can Not Create Language Text - C:\Users\..." and a few more create/delete, then the inevitable "Application" errors that tell me all the stuff it can't do now because it couldn't create/delete/write all those other files (about, oh, 20 error messages in total I'd guess).
Is it because I have spaces and a "." in my User name? (its C:\Users\Paul L. Ming\[whatever sub folder]". I swear my other computer/install had the same Paul L. Ming as my User and I didn't have a problem installing.
I have the 4.0 .NET, and I even installed the VC++ 2015 redistributable myself. The only other thing I can think of is with regards to all my security settings. I pretty much have this computer set to "No Spying Mode" (pretty much every "Allow Microsoft to..." and "Allow Trusted Microsoft Affiliates to..." is turned off). I could switch something "on" to install if needed...but it's going off right after.
Gods...I miss the old days when you bought a program, put in the floppy disks, and it installed everything needed to run it, then asked for a serial number. That was it. No calling home, no checking online periodically, etc.
I'm not trying to diss on the Paintstorm crew here, I love the program (bought 2 copies myself, gonna buy another for my soon to be arriving "mega rig", and I even convinced them to spot BORODANTE a free license...he bought one that day anyway
Sorry for the sour tone if it sounds like it; "fighting" with hardware/software set up isn't fun...like, ever.
Thanks for any help!
