[plt-dev] Fwd: Homework 1

Hi Robby,
Actually its not a problem with Dr Scheme. Its something to do with Vista/Windows 7. One cannot copy or create a folder in Library. We can add a folder but cannot create a folder in a library. Check this png I have attached. I have created a library called HP in Libraries. I am also new to Windows 7 but I know that you cannot create a directory there. Ask that guy to change the location of the installation. It should work fine.

Anyone seen anything like this before? Any other suggestions I might
try passing along to the student?

That directory, by default, is writable by you (who installed PLT
Scheme, presumably).

I recommend you try the tlab machines if your own machine doesn't let
you write to your own directories (this sure seems like a strange
thing to disallow and will likely break many applications, but I don't
know too much about this).

You might try creating a new user and then seeing if things work when
using that user. (Give the new user administrator access but don't
otherwise change any default settings)
