I recently installed Cerberus FTP Server 2.49 (3.6 MB) on a Vista SP1 PC. I have previously used the program on a Windows XP machine.
I installed Cerberus running the exe file as an Administrator (due to Vista’s UAC security).
But what I have found is, when I have Vista UAC turned OFF, Cerberus works fine.
But when I activate UAC i.e. run msconfig.exe -> Tools tab -> Enable UAC, and reboot the PC, Vista UAC prevents me from loading user information and displays this error, “Stats File Initialization Error : Unable to open stats file.” Basically the FTP program cannot load any information about user accounts.
So I can use Cerberus FTP Server on my Vista PC, so long as UAC is turned off. I would prefer to have it turned.
Any help in getting the program working with UAC will be much appreciated.
