Unusual launch error: \"Access to ...PRoCon.xml is denied\"

Question

When I launch Procon, after accepting the terms I get this error message

Unhandled exception has occured in your application. If you click Continue, the application will ignore this error and attempt to continue. If you click Quit, the application will close immediately.

 

Access to the path 'C:\WINDOWS\system32\PRoCon.xml' is denied.

 

I can post the "details" button text later if anyone needs it.

 

When I try to close Procon, I get another error message:

(same paragraph about unhandled exception)

Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

I would suggest re-downloading procon. Nothing in the application should be looking at system32.

This error happened twice on two different PCs, I'll try reinstalling but I think it will break after a short time

Apart from running it under a system account as a service or some other strange thing, I cant think of a circumstance where the xml file would be created any where except where you unzipped and ran procon from.

    • Hi All,

      So I've been thinking about doing something like this for a while but I always talked myself out of it. I want to get some feedback on this idea and how many would think about using it if it was offered.

      In the past I know how hard it was for some users to get a MySQL database going and running the BFACP (since it's a bit requirement heavy in some cases). What I would be doing is offering to manage both of these for you.

      If enough interest was shown in something like this I would definitely think about doing it. Of course, I also know the risks I would be taking in something like this, but to list what I would be offering I guess is this.

      MySQL Hosting


      Daily backups of the database to a remote site & option to download it yourself.


      No limit on how big your database can be (within reason).




      BFACP Hosting (If running AdKats on your layers)


      This would run the newest version (v3.0)


      Will still be available to run on your own hardware


      Will have extra features that are not available for an open source setup (still need to think of good things )


      Able to use your own domain name with the proper DNS setup.




      Both Above



      Please let me know what you think of this idea and vote in the poll. Again not confirming anything like this will happen but if I get enough interest from the community for something like this then please let me know.

      Disclaimer: This will NOT be something affiliated with MyRCON but will be ran through it in terms of a payment processor.
