Use Colorpic as a non-administrator?


I really enjoy your your program Colorpic 4.1.
But I have my windows XP pro set up in a way that I am running my normal programs with the least privileges.
But i had to set it up with Administrator. But now I get Access refused when I try to access patterns.xml.
Would be handy if that would be in my home directory so I could have the possibility to edit it. Now I need to run the program as Admin.

The ColorPic uses palettes.xml to store the color chip values that you save. If you simply grant access to the file C:\Program Files\ColorPic 4.1\palettes.xml for that user then you should be able to use the application without any problem.

Would this solution work for you?.

Yes, i have used the ntfs system to grant access. But it is kinda ugly don't you think? It is a workaround, but would maybe be easy to implement. In that way could different designers have their own palletes :).

I like the advantage that different users get a different palette file. We were considering updating the whole palettes section of the ColorPic in the next version, and I'll look into this when we do that. It's likley to be several months out at this point as we have more pressing concerns at the moment.
