Starting with version 6.2.3, the RightBooth application data files are now saved in the user's local application data folder (in a sub folder \RightBooth6). This has been changed in order to prevent potential problems caused by Microsoft's User Account Control restrictions (UAC) on Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 when multiple user accounts are available on the computer.
What are the RightBooth application data files?
These files include the RightBooth settings, default language choice, default event prompts, any test video recordings and the RightBooth web browser settings.
An example of a user's local AppData folder is as follows:
Prior to this version, the RightBooth application data files were always saved in the common application data folder: C:\ProgramData\RightBooth6.
If you are upgrading from an earlier version of RightBooth, the first time you run this new version, any files in the common application data folder will be automatically copied (one time) to the currently logged on user's local AppData folder. This will not affect the operation of RightBooth.
What are the Implications of This Change?
1) This now means that if there are multiple users of the same computer (i.e. multiple login accounts), each user will have their own RightBooth settings and their own application data files.
2) Any application data file access problems (caused by UAC) should no longer happen.
Note: if further file access restrictions have been placed on your computer's AppData\Local folders (for example by a System Administrator) then RightBooth may not work correctly.
