Yes, Portable uses install folder to save settings and files so installing in regular folder will 100% make permission problems. Install portable always to Separate non protected folder like c:\MMWPortable

Also if portable works than problem is in system settings and permissions.

HINT: When You install MMW as Portable you can always copy regular MM.DB to portable folder and avoid creatin of library from Scratch

Alternatively you could give full permissions to users for the MM program folder (e.g. "c:\Program Files (x86)\MediaMonkey").
I prefer this, because I don't like a separate root folder.
For a more or less clean install, you would have to first rename the existing folder, create the program folder manually, set the permissions and then install MM portable there.
Of course it's easier and a little bit cleaner, if you let MM install the portable version to e.g. C:\MediaMonkey.

BTW, any feedback from Symantec yet?

Usually there is no feedback they just update definitions for false positives.

I recommend to release the new version only if Symantec updates the definitions. They haven't done so yet.
Alternatively the old Winamp.exe could be used for the release.

Thanks for feedback, re-opened:

Was the WinAmp.exe from 4.1.8.1751 ok? I used that one as permanent for the fix to apply.

It seems that Norton just update the signature, so build 1762 might work for you.

Regardless, we've also created a new build that uses the Winamp.exe file from MMW build 1751. Can you confirm that it solves the problem for you?

Norton quarantined the winamp.exe from build 1762 at the time I wrote my last post.
But now I've installed it again and can confirm that Norton has updated the definitions in the meantime and 1762 works.

Can you also confirm that build 1763 works ok for you?

Thanks.
