VectorPro fails to launch after a new installation?

Answer: 

VectorPro fails to launch after a new installation?

Vector Pro should always be installed on the host PC using Local administrator rights.

The user will need full access control to the following locations:

Default database location - C:\ProgramData\Mecmesin\VectorPro\

Default install Location - C:\Program Files (x86)\Mecmesin\VectorPro\

If the PC is using a Domain network and multiple user accounts are required for use with VectorPro, the following error maybe encountered when starting the software from the desktop shortcut and a non-administrative level user account.

      

 

To solve the issue, an account on the host PC with administrator rights will be required.

  1. The folder "C:\ProgramData\Mecmesin" will need to be given "Full Control" to the "Domain Users" group.
  2. Use "Windows Explorer" to delete the shortcut "VectorPro" in "C:\Users\Public\Desktop".
  3. Go to the Desktop (C:\Users\Public\Desktop) and create a new shortcut to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mecmesin\VectorPro\Gaia.WinApp.exe". Rename it "VectorPro".

Note for 32-bit operating systems the short cut needs to be made to "C:\Program Files\Mecmesin\VectorPro\Gaia.WinApp.exe". Rename it "VectorPro".

              Any domain user will be able to launch VectorPro from this new Desktop shortcut.
