Media Snatcher on Windows Vista
« on: August 23, 2008, 05:05:28 pm »
Media Snatcher Version 2.36 will install properly and run immediately after install properly. After you close out of it or restart the computer, it will error when you try to open it again. This appears to be a problem with the security features in Vista. However, if you run it as an administrator, it will work fine.

To run it as administrator, right click on the icon and select "Run as administrator" from the shortcut menu. You can set it to run this way all the time by right clicking on the icon and selecting "Properties" from the shortcut menu. When the "Properties" dialog box comes up, switch to the "Compatibility" tab and select "Run this program as an administrator". Then select "OK" to save this setting. (See attached screenshot for example.)

Either method will still bring up the confirmation dialog box when you run it. Just select "Allow" and Media Snatcher will load up.
