May be "exotic" symbols in path to editor file? Sometime I have a same problems with cyrillik letters. Try to install editor to c:\temp

Hi,

 

in some cases for any reasons we don´t know will the path to the xml editor not be stored. 

As workaround you can edit the configfile of Machine Configurator 'mc.properties' manually.

When installing into %ProgramFiles% or %ProgramFiles(x86)% then the installation folder is heavily protected.

Generally files that need to be changed by the user should never be stored in the installation folder.

To be able to store the XML file editor path, you will have to run MC once as administrator.

It would be best to make developers aware that companies do not turn of UAC or any other control mechanism protecting against virus vulnerabilities.

Meanwhile one should install all Siemens products that exhibit problems with the anti virus protection into some location like C:\Siemens.

I remember heard that before but do not 100% sure about the root case.

Ideas:

* use the latest version of Machine Configurator

* Make sure that you have full (admin) permissions at least when you install and set XML Editor

Separation of application files and user-editable files was introduced with Windows 95.

The separation was enforced with Windows Vista.

On Linux and other UNIX systems this separation was always there, so nothing new at all.

It is just pure laziness and violates the measures needed to prevent virus vulnerabilities, if a software is still saving settings to its installation folder.

In the modern age software must be installed by an administrative user, but it must be able to fully run with a non-privileged user without any special measures in a corporate environment.
