iFolder 3.6 client causes error on first run

Hi all

Have seen a few posts regarding this, but nothing ever seemed to come of them.

I'm creating a new SOE using ZCM to deploy all our apps, and i've noticed something funny with iFolder 3.6

Once iFolder has been installed, after a reboot, if the first user to run iFolder isn't a local Administrator, they will get an error:-
Unable to Start iFolder Services

A software error is preventing iFolder from initializing

"Object reference not set to an instance of an object"

The above is a Windows error message. If i then click OK, and re-run iFolder, it starts up fine.

BUT, if the first user to run it after install is a local Administrator, it doesn't error at all, and all subsequent users on the PC will not get any problems.

Anyone else also have this?

Re: iFolder 3.6 client causes error on first run

I found this same issue when installing ifolder on the new windows 7 RC just released. Worked fine when I relaunched the ifolder a 2nd time like you said...
But at least it does work on Windows 7!!!!!
