Second time bug

After I installed StencylWorks, it worked fine when I started it straight from the installer. However, when I started it the second time, none of the example games or templates came up, it asked me to agre to T&Cs again, and to log in again.
 Most seriously, when i tried to create a new game none of the templates came up either. I could set properties (name etc.) for a blank game but when i came to create it the saving bar came up and wouldnt go away. The logs said something like (MasterWriter.java:373).
 I fully uninstalled and reinstalled, and again it worked straight from the installer, but after that not.
 Any ideas?

Post your computer's memory specs. I think they'll solve it from there.

Are you able to edit your folder or games as computer admin? That may be it.

No ::) Not really too sure with files and stuff beyond the basics anyway

So, you don't own the computer you're on? If that is the case tell the owner that you want to run it. If not, check all dependencies(files and software the app needed) and take a screen of each. Looks like it is a Java error.

Can you let us know how you fixed it so that if someone else run into similar problem down the line? We are aware of problems like this.

What OS do you have? XP, Vista or win 7?

I know it is related to the window installer/file permission/admin mode type of business but cannot really help you further than that.

Anyone with win 7 and familiar with this?

OK.

I think I understand a little more of what's going on.

Can you send out this info:.

Open SW, go to File->Preferences->Workspace tab, you will see Workspace folder there. What exactly do you have in this field?

Cracked it :D The workspace was running out of my actual user folder rather than My Documents within that. Cheers for the help guys.
