Our retail stores have a software package developed and maintained by an
outside firm. There are a couple of points at which they have to interface
with the System i's database so I have to install System i Navigator and
PC5250 communications whenever a defunct PC is replaced.

All of the PCs these days are Win7 (although one is Win 8). We have IBM i
Access for Windows 7.1, which works well with Win 7. Heck, I even have it
installed on my Win7 PC.

The install usually goes without issue. However, in two instances, after I
created with 5250 session and went to save it, the PC said that I wasn't
authorized to save it in the default location, but I could save it in a
folder labeled REG. Okay, so I did, but it didn't show up in the "Start or
Configure Session" when I was done. Ultimately not a problem, as I used
Windows Explorer, found the folder, and created a shortcut on the desktop
(which is where the guys and dolls want it, anyway).

But my question is: What is going on? The PC group says that all store PCs
are set up the same way with the same admin, etc. There ain't no REG folder
(that I can find, anyway) buried on my PC and the MS manual for Win 7 (for
which I paid my own hard-earned cash) doesn't mention it either.
