Thanks, but this may not be necessary. I think I have replicated the
problem in my development setting. It is indeed a permissions issue,
caused by the @#$%^& Windows permissions system. I replicated it by
switching to a minute rollover. At that point logged in as the owner of
the file, the minute rollover works. Logged out as that user and logged
in as a non-admin and started the program. The rollover failed to work.
Now if I could only get some information about what the permissions need
to be (good luck with the Microsoft websites), I could actually solve this.
Does anyone reading this know the answer?
