    Install problem

    I have received the following error message when trying to install a calendar program. I have tried for 2 months to resolve it with the software company, but go around in circles. The error message is: Error attempting to open with write access one or more Configuration Files for Hashing!" Has anyone ever come across this and could you suggest where I go to fix the problem? I have never had a problem using the earlier version of this software.

    Thank you in advance.

    Best,
    br

    Have you tried to Google the term Configuration files for hashing?
    There seem to be many hits there with some applying to particular programs. You will have to sort through some to see if any apply to your situation.

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    Is the account you are installing with an administrator account?

    Well, I am the administrator and have my own account which is where I work. It is just my computer.

    Re: Install problem

    But is the account/user a member of the administrator's group?

    Not necessarily. In XP Pro there are several types or classes of user. Each type or class has different capabilities. If you right click My Computer and select Manage the Computer Management console will open. You should see an entry called 'Local Users and Groups'. Click on the "+" sign and then click on the 'Users' entry. Double click on your user name and then click on the 'Member Of' tab. You will see a list of the groups to which the user belongs.
