First display hidden files: control panel - folder options - show hidden files

Second, turn off the "use simple file sharing" setting in Control Panels - Folder options - View tab - advanced setting, last item in the list.

Third - Click the "reset all folders" button in the view tab.

Now the file permissions should appear as a tab when you right click on a folder and choose Properties.

Next set permissions to full control for all users for

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Kinetic Imaging\

(and all subdirectories)

In Windows 7 you find this folder here: (You need to set full permission for all users and all subdirectories)


Open the "Configuration manager" software from andor.

next - turn multi-level user control "off" (uncheck the box)

next define location of the Shared ImageDisk in the configuration manager
