Re: [guide-user] Re: Guide on Windows 8.1 problem

there is no special program on my machine, it is just the operating system Windows,
Win 7 64 Bit in my case. Clicking with the right mouse button on the icon on your screen
or the file _guide9.exe_ in your Guide directory will pop up the window which allows you to
do some tasks like cut, paste, delete, rename and so on. In the last line (usually) there
you can choose _Property_ which for this part will pop up a new window where you can
choose the register card _Compatability_. There you can change some settings.
Among other things you can deactivat the the property _Visual Design_ what you should do.
I don’t know the correct expressions in english because the language of my OS is
German, but you should be able to find the route.
Hope this helps,

Hi Rolf,

Had a look at your suggestion but I do not have a property visual designs the menu you specify.

Maybe it is related to a program you are running on your machine.

Hi Keith,
try this:
- click right mouse button on icon or guide9.exe
- click left mouse button on properties
- click left mouse button on compatibility
- deactivate the property visual designs
For me this has been the solution.

Hi Oliver,

Spot on - had to set them to 'full control' just 'write' did not work.

Still trying to get the hang of 8.1  I have read about problems with permissions but this is the first time I have come up against it.

Thank you for your help.

Hi Keith,

I'm running GUIDE 9.0 at WIn 8.1, 64-bit too. I have not the problem you reported.

Maybe this is the solution for you:

The setting to show a dataset is sored at the tdf-file of the user data set. Please look for the line "shown". 0 stands for don't show, 1 = show dataset.

Please check you tdf files. Are they write protected? Maybe this had happen at the transfer from your XP machine to your new computer.  If these files are write protected, the shown-setting (and all other settings for user-datasets) can't be changed.
