Morpho error on government computer with Windows 7
I am trying to install Morpho on my government computer with Windows 7 and am having some difficulty. I downloaded the file, started the installer, it said it was installed correctly and all seems well, but when I open it, it gives me a "Failed to create config directory' and closes."

- Status changed from New to In Progress
Using a Windows 7 virtual box instance:
-I created a non-admin account ("leinfelder")
-installed Morpho 1.10.0, opting to run the installer as an admin account ("visitor") and put it in the Program Files directory
-ran Morpho as non-admin account ("leinfelder").
-created profile as expected (C:\Users\leinfelder\.morpho)

"Hi Tammy - on Windows 7 Ben was able to install Morpho logged in to the computer as the administrator and then logged out and logged in as the regular user, and was able to launch Morpho. The Morpho files are written to something like: 'C:\Users\neher\.morpho'. When you tried as the administrator did you still receive the configuration error the same way? Also have you by chance ever had an older version of Morpho on this computer?
This is a brand new labtop, so the only version might be the one I had saved and tried to install from the day before. I will run the uninstall and then reinstall it and see if that helps. I have sent this lap top over to our lab, so it might be a couple of days until I get it back to mess with it. It sounds like the NPS had no problem with their Windows 7 machines so it might just be something screwy with mine.
