Hi Bruce,
I have now with your help solved this .
For info the is %APPDATA% is the standard xp C:\documents and settings\userid\application data\
(there are some upper case letters due but that would be complex typing for me.)

The problem seems to be although the user has write permission to this folder, Demeter doesn't try to create
Its own folder (does this happen during a standard install for the installer?) so it seems  when in startup it finds there is no %APPDATA%/Demeter folder to put  the log in it gives up.
Hence by first creating a Demeter folder in %APPDATA% folder,  the program runs happily. Thanks for the help in figuring it out.


ted is short for sorted BTW.
