Just a quick question re an issue I have with Epidata analysis and the C drive default directories it uses for some functions.

This is the message I get when I load Epidata Analyis

* EpiData Analysis default settings file
* Edit the next lines to change size or font
. set echo=off
Access is denied
Operation aborted

Although I can still use Epidata Analysis I do not get the option to change the settings, I don't see the results of the read command displayed or information about how many records are in the file. I also have to change the default I send the output to as I can not access the default directory. I asked our IT help desk and they say the reason this happens is that I am now allowed access to one of the directories Epidata looks for - an administrator folder in the C drive. I wonder if this might be a problem for others who are in organisations/working on networks where users are not allowed access to administrator folders. Do you have a suggested workaround?
