    Hello,
    a week ago I had to reinstall Windows XP on my PC and after that I tried to install NOD32 (of course, licensed version). But, there was a problem with missing folder C:\WINDOWS\Profiles\All Users\Desktop and the installation failed immediately. Ok, after I created it manualy, everything was ok.
    The question is why NOD32 checks this location (c:\windows\profiles\..) since this folder is relevant (as far as I know) only in case when OS is upgraded? My installation was clean from the beginning (I have formated disk) and in that case user profiles are stored in c:\Document and settings\ ... folder.
    So, I think this is a bug and it should be fixed.
    Regards,
    Mladen

    Did it happen with the latest beta 2.50.9?

    No, I used the last offical version 2.12.3. Interesting thing is that it happened on Windows XP, but not on Windows 2000, where this directory was also missing.
