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?
