Copying Program Files to a New Folder

Windows 7 limits access to some files in system folders such as "Program Files(x86)". Since the Algometer software saves its options and defaults in an "ini" file located in the same folder as the Executable file, it has problems editing that "ini" file.
Until the software can be modified to alleviate the problem, an easy fix is to copy the folder to a non-protected location.
  1. Chose or create a new folder in which you want the Algometer program files to reside (such as: "C:\Users\myname\Documents".
  2. Control/Drag or Copy/Paste the whole folder: "C:/Program Files(x86)/Algometer" to the new location.
  3. Create a shortcut to the new folder executable file if desired.
