I have had to re-image my ssd and re-install everything. Gpl won't save my player name so that I am unable to install the GEMP package.
Anyone ever had this issue?  And any ideas for me to try....perhaps something in my memory for a old install, and where do I look?
                                                  Thanks

Ok, first couple of attempts: Have you installed GPL to "C:\Program Files\" or any other directory which has "program files" as part of its name? This will introduce extra security restrictions under later versions of Windows and may cause GPL to work incorrectly. Does your Windows user id have full access to the directory where GPL is installed?

Yes, I put it into "Program Files (x86). So I'll try and put it elsewhere and see how it goes, thanks Oh and by the way I think I may have selected Program groups as well

Yeah, try C:\Sierra\GPL\gpl.exe   :)

Also, delete all player sub-folders within the C:\Sierra\GPL\players folder.  Start by making a new player when you start GPL for the first time after doing that.

Maybe the 'players' folder is write protected?

Thank you for the compliment Greg, but I think I'm probably on rung 1 or 2 of Bob's ladder! :D
