Hi, thanks for the report!

Sadly, I do not have a Windows XP machine for testing. Can you please provide more details what goes wrong upon installation? Is there an error message?

Error missing privileges on XP

  • keywords installation, error, XP, user, privileges added
  • priority changed from major to minor

I have recreated the issue, to find out about the error message. It seems the Installer wants to create a folder "C:\Program Files\XuvTools?", and fails due to missing privileges (see attached screenshot). I don't know any immediate solution. We will need to investigate if it is a requirement for normal users to be able to install XuvTools? / libBlitzBioFormats.
