You may spot the problem right away, but I am stumped. I use a program called "Collectibles Organizer Deluxe" to keep track of my collections. The program resides on a Win 7 computer, though it is supposedly compatible with Win 8 and 8.1.
As records are added, the entire program folder is backed up on a thumb drive via copy/paste. When the .exe file on the thumb drive is opened, all the records appear properly when the thumb drive resides on the Win 7 computer. However, when the thumb drive is moved to the Win 8.1 computer, and the .exe file is opened on that computer, the new records do not display. A "properties" check reveals that the original program folder (residing on the Win 7 computer) and the copied program folder on the thumb drive have identical properties.
What gives? Is this evidence of a copy protection scheme?
Help much appreciated.
