JFlash.exe tries to create file under "program files" but fails due to inaccessibility


This is a very old error that keeps on recurring for some reason. JFlash wants to store an .ini file in its installation directory but is unable to do so due to lack of access rights. Have encountered it in the 6.30 release.

Please do not post answers about running JFlash with administrator rights, or running JFlash from a different directory. These are not viable solutions as you cannot count on being able to do either. For example, it is normal to have such restrictions in a production environment.

Hope that this bug gets fixed and that it stays fixed

Kind regards,

Hello Christian,

Thank you for your inquiry.
Which OS are you using exactly?
In future iterations of J-Flash it is planned to store the ini file in AppData instead of Program Files to avoid issues as you described.
