    I tested iLive Editor on 2 Windows 7 Machines.

    on a normal workstation “Windows7 Ultimate 32Bit German” it runs ok. (clean fresh installation)

    on a notebook “Windows7 Ultimate 32Bit English” (installed parallel to a windows XP) i got a errormessage:
    launch4j: “an error occurred while starting the application”

    on the notebook i have to change the UAC “User Account Control” to “newer notify”.
    With this setting the Editor runs ok.

    at the moment i don’t have the time to look deeper in the system, the “problem” is solved for me…

    I’ve been running the Editor on Windows 7 x64 since 1.51. Found and resolved two issues, and it’s been smooth sailing:

    1> Window repaints happen much faster if you configure your Editor shortcut to “Disable Desktop Composition.” This turns off the Aero Glass interface for the duration of the Editor session.

    2> Don’t install the x64 Java VM. Not only does it run slower in browsers than the x86 version, the Editor just plain won’t run.

    YMMV —

    I spend some minutes ;) to look deeper in the system to find out what is the problem with the
    Error: launch4j: “an error occurred while starting the application”

    The findings: it is NOT a UCA issue like i wrote in my first post.
    The problem was a issue with „folder redirection“

    You will find „Folder redirection“ here:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionExplorerUser Shell Folders
    Specially the “Personal“ entry.
    if you don’t have the write permissions on the required folders, or if the folders don’t exist (and can’t be created): then Editor won’t work

    the required folders are
    “my documents” (on the desktop) the “personal” entry in the registry
    HOMEPATH{username}Allen & Heath
    (aka C:Documents and SettingsBobAllen & Heath
    or C:UsersBobAllen & Heath)
    HOMEPATHAll UsersApplication DataAllen & Heath
    (aka C:Documents and SettingsAll UsersApplication DataAllen & Heath
    or C:UsersAll UsersApplication DataAllen & Heath)
