Moving from Win XP to Win 7 (hair tearing-out time!)

    Moving from Win XP to Win 7 (hair tearing-out time!)

    Hi folks

    I'm a long-time user of Pegasus (from 199?) and have never had a problem before in copying all my Pegasus files from the old PC to the new one.

    However, on this occasion, with my new PC being a Win 7 Pro platform, I seem to have hit a brick wall. I've moved all the files from the old machine to the new one, retaining exactly the same mail box location: E:\PMAIL\MAIL-2\PMAIL\MAIL

    Yes, it's a little unusual, but it's always worked before!

    I've got the latest version of Pegasus (4.62) but when I go into Tools/Options/Mailbox location, I see the above hard drive path.

    I've tried clicking on "Change now", which is supposed to close PM down and then restart, using the new location. Nothing happens.

    I've tried checking the box "Move mailbox to the new location" and hitting "Change now". Again, nothing happens.

    I've tried copying the files from the old machine to different locations on the new PC and applying the above settings, but with ZERO results.

    Has ANYONE got any ideas about what's causing this problem? I sure would appreciate any advice and help!

    Kind regards
