Vista & Keeper

Just bought a new laptop, which came with the Vista operating system.

The first thing I did was try to install a copy of YourOtherMind onto it and… it didn't work correctly. After a couple minutes of digging I found a very EASY work around (I do plan on putting in the proper fix in the next couple weeks).

Basically Vista is a little more uptight about directory permissions, so all we need to do is move YourOtherMind from where it installed to.

#1. Move the keeper folder (on my machine it was from this location:  C:\Program Files (x86)\YourOtherMindC:\Program Files (x86)\YourOtherMind) to any other location on your machine (I put mine into the “Documents” folder).
#2. Create a new shortcut to keeper.exe and everything should work fine. If it does not, please let me know.
