Thanks FrooBrar -- results were exactly as expected. Now I'm wondering about Vista deployment. Have you or anyone installed TVAP 0.36 (with the Inno Setup installer) on Vista? I would expect problems due to UAC, trust etc. unless you can get around all that by disabling UAC (?). If the Inno installer is a problem for Vista, and there isn't an acceptable work-around (e.g., disabling UAC for the install?) then a Dev Studio deployment project may be the answer. Using an installer (instead of a zip file) has the advantages that the TiVo metadata COM object can be automatically registered and a shortcut created. But if the security issues are too difficult perhaps the zip approach could be used for Vista with a batch file the user would have to run to register the COM. I welcome any suggestions or comments.
