Hi Sherman,
 
Yes, this is probably a good idea - thanks.
 
Regards, Dave.

	This is a quick note for the developers, and for anyone who
encounters the same problem I did.  When I tried running pgadmin2 as a
non local admin user the program would crash every time I tried to
connect to a database:
	 
	Run-time error '75';
	Path/File access error.
	 
	I created a folder for log files under C:\Documents and
Settings\username\pgadmin2 and set pgaccess to save it's logs there.
Problem solved.  I think this would be a good default place to store the
logfiles & other user settings for pgaccess,  as not every user can
access C:\ .  It might be nice if the error was a little more explicit
too!
	 
	BTW I think this error will always occur on XP systems, although
it will also be a problem on Windows 2000 systems that have been locked
down by the admins.
	 
	Thanks,
	 
	Sherman Boyd
