When installing PC-ALE under Vista or Windows 7, ***DO NOT*** install to the default C:\PROGRAM FILES\ path. Vista and later require programs that are in the "Program Files" or "Program Files (x86)" folders to write data to the "ProgramData" folder. PC-ALE does not support that convention. To overcome the limitation, just install PC-ALE to its own unique folderunder the root folder of your main drive. One suggestion is to install it to a "C:\PC_ALE\" folder but any meaningful name will do.
The FULL install of PC-ALE will install and register needed .DLL files and create the needed subdirectories and install all needed files except for a .QRG file. Any previous version of PC-ALE will be overwritten if the default installation directory is used. If you have been using an older version of PC-ALE, take note that the ALE.DAT files are NOT compatible and will be over written when ALE.EXE is run.
[PC-ALE v1.08 Build 184.108.40.206 Beta] *** TEST BUILD #3.2 - FOR EVALUATION ONLY
PC-ALE v1.08 is currently under development, there will be a number of test builds available prior to its release.
If you have been using an older version of PC-ALE, take note that the ALE.DAT files are NOT compatible and will be over written. The .QRG file format is still current.
