Thanks for posting the article. It was helpful and insightful.

@Gioneo

Does it give rights to just me if I run the script? It just adds it to my context menu when I am logged in?

 

I have tried to run Data Crow again and it keeps telling me "This directory cannot be created, please choose another directory.YellYellYell

The directory that refers to is the software suggested directory.

I tried to do a search on the error message but nothing helpful came up. CryCryCry

 The script basically modifies your registry settings. You will always get the option in your context menu. Because of the default windows security settings, some files or directories are "locked". Hence you wouldn't be able to modify those said files or directories unless you go to their properties and change the permissions. The script does all that for you.

Let me ask, in which directory are you trying to install it?

Does it have to be THAT directory?

Is the program itself creating the directory? If so, create it yourself and have the installation point to it.

Ok. I just installed on my machines. unfortunately I'm only running XP and Win 7, no vista. The install directory is C:Program filesData Crow

I recommend you create it first and do the install. When you get to where it shows the directory to install it, point it to the one you created, see if that works.

But I still think your have permission issues  Confused

 

On a different note, I wanted to uninstall it

- Revo

- Ccleaner

- Glary

- ASC

None of them has it listed. Funny. Had to use the uninstaller in the program's folder.

I have lots of photos and music in folders named as such.

 

Any suggestions on a program that will organize these items. Maybe a library type of program? Freeware of course. LaughLaugh

 

 


 

I'm not sure there's a program that would organize photos and music together – but for music, here's a freeware option (in addition to the iTunes and Media Monkey that have already been mentioned.)

 

http://www.mixxx.org/  (Digital DJ Pro)

 

Also, Real Player and Windows Media Player also organize music.

Whew I finally got it installed.

Installed it to "C:Program Files (x86)Data Crow"

 

On a different note for me, it does not show up on Revo or Ccleaner for me either. It also does not show up on my start menu either. What's up with that?Confused

I had to create a desktop shortcut.

I did a glance over eval of it.

It is an excellent program to create database to inventory music photos books and several other items. It is absolutley invaluable if you needed to prove up an insurance claim. (I have been in ins for ?? years.) The one thing adj want to know if you are claiming a loss for collectibles is, do you have a list and a price on "hard to find or price" items/collectible.

It is very detailed.

Has a great help menu with definitions

You can run it in expert or beginner mode

For items you have no idea what it would cost to replace, it will search the net and get you a price. (This is priceless) LaughLaughLaugh

It will be very time consuming to enter all the information but doing it a little at the time, it is really worth it in case you home or property is destroyed in a catastrophe.

I think so. And since it is FREE, I can get a lot of use out of it endlessly.

@ebony – if you're running Vista x64, maybe the program was having trouble trying to install to the default folder for 64bit programs (c:/program files). The folder that you finally got to work (c:/program files (x86)) is where 32 bit programs on a 64bit WinOS are installed.

But since it's working, I wouldn't worry about it Smile
