Make a shortcut to Mushclient.exe
Change the Start In directory in the shortcut to a directory you have write access to.

A normal user doesn't have write permissions to either C:\Documents and settings\all users... or C:\program files

ah sorry!
v 4.40

i tried 4.43, and it gave me more detailed info, like i probably have no writing permission to dir, which is the point of all this mess.

solution (quick&dirty) : borrowed usb stick, copied installation there, playing from there, no problem.

this is unsatisfactory, but it is my problem, and i have to fix it later byt getting more priviledges from the compSupportDude, whom i am actually helping now (by playing muds)... :D

-thanks-
