Re: [guide-user] Installing Guide 8 on a Windows 10 PC

Hi Roger (and Roger),

The Program files folders are sometimes read-only for user
accounts. One thing I'd suggest trying is to get the current
software from

Among other fixes, this will let you know if a file fails
to get opened, read, or written to when that really, absolutely
ought to have happened. In such a case, you might get a message
such as 'ucac4.tdf not opened: Permission denied', or something
like that.

(Don't ask me why I didn't do that back in Guide 1.0. It would
have spared users hours of frustration, as well as me when I tried
to figure out issues remotely, just to get that sort of basic
"can't find file X" sort of information.)
