Two Versions of Program
I'm using Vista Home and installed Eudora, copied my old Eudora folders from
my old PC (XP) into C:\Program Files\Qualcomm.
If I right click on Eudora, select Properties, set the Privilege Level in
Compatibility to "Run this program as an administrator", I can
see all my copied folders which contain emails sent & received.
If I uncheck the "Run this program as an administrator" none of my copied
data is present and it looks like a fresh install.

The reason I want to fix this is, all the programs that call the email
program (like IE or Windows Photo Gallery, etc) call the
version of Eudora that doesn't have my copied folders.

Or is there a way to have the programs that call the email program, select
the one in C:\Program Files\Qualcomm.

Thanks

Re: Two Versions of Program
Hi,

While programs install to C:\Program Files, the programs don't actually
write to that folder by design due to security concerns (which you override
when you use the 'run as admin' option). Instead, Vista uses a file
virtualization, and the programs run from and write data to
%userprofile%\appdata\local\VirtualStore. Your data files should be placed
in the appropriate folder under this location.
