Important notes for Windows Vista users.
The following concerns Windows Vista only. If you
are running 98/XP/Server 2003, you don't have to worry about
New security system in Vista prevents many programs
from working properly. SR is not an exception.
- You may not access the files created by administrator and other
users if you run SR with normal privileges. It means that SR will
not rename absolutely all files if it was started under a normal
user account. To gain control over ALL files, you have to run SR as
If you see messages like "CANNOT RENAME THE FILE..." in the log,
there are two possible reasons: 1) invalid template 2) insufficient
user privileges (need admin privileges).
- Drag & Drop does not work between normal processes and the
ones started with administrator privileges. If you start SR as
administrator, you should also start the file source application
(for example, Explorer, ACDSee) as administrator. The file source
applications called by SR always inherit the privileges of SR, so
this problem remains unhandled only if you execute such
- Now SR may not keep settings and other stuff in the Program
Files folder, so all your presets and settings will be moved to
another folder "C:\ProgramData\Acritum\SR" which is available for
both reading and writing. The application files remain in the old
place called "C:\Program Files\Sophisticated Rename" that becomes
read-only for non-administrators. Please note that the tutorial
files also remain with application files, so you will not be able
to rename them unless you run SR as administrator. You may copy
them elsewhere manually to be able to process them from an an
unprivileged user account.
- It is highly recommended to run SR with ADMINISTRATOR
privileges ALWAYS, however, this is not required.
