User Account Control

You probably does not see resulting file if you're not under admin account and try to create it in the default folder that is "c:\Program Files\Intelligent Converters". This is because of User Account Control (UAC), the Windows security feature that protects Program Files directory. It diverts user data stored in the Program Files into special folder inside user's home. For our case it is:

C:\Users\{username}\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\Intelligent Converters\

where {username} must be replaced with actual user name. There are two options to prevent that kind of behavior:

  1. log in "Administrator" account on Windows and start the program using "Run as Administrator" mode
  2. disable User Account Control

How to disable User Account Control

UAC can be disabled via the Control Panel options as follows:

  1. open "Control Panel\User Accounts and Family Safety\User Accounts"
  2. in the opened window click on "Change User Account Control settings" link
  3. in the User Account Control settings dialog, move the slider to the bottom (Never Notify)

Now UAC is disabled.
