News - 1-February-2007

 

Subject: Running DDL with the new Windows Vista released 30-January-2007 (applies to all versions of Vista).

Special Note: Alternative 'Solution' We have found that you can 'right click on DDL Icon' on the desktop and click 'Run as administrator'. or When you right click on DDL icon on desktop and select properties, select compatibility tab, then check always run as administrator then APPLY.

Vista has three areas that should be checked for 'Run as Administrator'.

1st place is under Properties-Shortcut-Advanced Tab

2nd is under Properties-Compatibility Tab

3rd is under Properties-Compatibility Tab-All Users Tab

Make sure all have a check mark in the box.

For some un-know reasons Vista will uncheck these at times, so go back and check them if you have any problem.

In order to avoid the warning message when using DDL with Windows Vista, you will need to reinstall DDL into C:\Drivers Daily Log

DO NOT USE the default settings or you will get a warning message every time you load Drivers Daily Log. This will fix the warning message.

Default location is: C:\Program Files\Drivers Daily Log

 

Warning after following these Steps - you will most likely need to get a new ActivationCode as Driver Daily log will revert back to Trial period. Make sure you have your DDL/CustomerID/DDLID number. Use the 'Request for Activation Form" located on the main web page on our Web site for faster service and less delays.

 

Download and Install the latest version of DDL from this link:

Download Full Version Now If you paid $95.00

Download Lite Version Now If you paid $50.00

 

Run the install program and follow the steps below:

Step # 1 - Click Next

 

Step # 2  - Click I agree  (You must agree to continue)

 

Step # 3 - This is the most important step - Change the information in the Destination Folder from C:\Program Files\Drivers Daily Log\ to C:\Drivers Driver Log  (Example below:) Watch your typing as it must match. C:Drivers Daily Log is not the same as C:\Drivers Daily Log nor is C:\DriversDailyLog. It must be C:\Drivers Daily Log.  Always watch this location when you update to the latest version. Once entered it show continue each time to use this new directory.

Step # 4 - Remove the Check mark in the "Run Drivers Daily Log"  Click on it will remove it. Click on Finish.

 

We have to move or copy your Drivers Folder from C:\Program Files\Drivers Daily Log\Joe Driver to the new directory.

Step # 5 - Click on My Computer icon. Double Left click on C:\ in the right window pane. Double Left Click on Program Files folder in the right window pane. Double Left Click on Drivers Daily Log Folder. Single Left click on your name (drivers folder, this will highlight your folder. Single Left Click on EDIT (top menu), Single Left Click on Move to a Folder... Go down the list till you see C:\. Single Left click on C:\. Find Drivers Daily Log folder. Single Left Click to highlight it. then click on Move..

Open your Drivers Daily Log by clicking on the DDL icon located on your Desk top. If the splash screen appears, Click on OK.

Step # 6 - Check the radio button for Run 'New User Wizard" to create a new vehicle driver now.  Click on OK

Step # 7 - Click on Cancel button

Step # 8 - Single Left click on your name to highlight it. Then Left click on OK to Save it. That's it DDL will re-open and you should now see your logs. If your a team you will need to copy your CoDrivers folder to this new location. Just copy the steps over for them.

 

Vista will still pop up a dialog  box for most programs that ask if you want to allow the program to run, This is a part of the new security. It let you know that a program has  been started. Since most of the time you know this as you clicked on it is very annoying. There is a great utility made by TweakUAC that can be used to turn this off. You can download and install this utility from this link:  http://www.tweak-uac.com

Once downloaded you should choose the 2nd option (see screen shot below).

 

 

WARNING:  If you are new to computers and do not fully understand what the UAC is and what it does, WE RECOMMEND YOU DO NOT USE THIS OR CHOOSE THE 3RD OPTIONS!!
