Subject Re: Cannot install any Geronimo Sample apps

Vista introduces new security constraints, so some simple questions to 
help debug what's going on (as I don't have a Vista machine to test with) -

- Are you running Geronimo under the same User as it was 
installed/extracted with?

- Does the user account you're running Geronimo under have Admin rights 
or is just a User?

- Where did you extract Geronimo too?  Under your \Users\<uid>\ 
directory or to something like C:\ ?  Extracting it to a location 
outside your home directory would be a problem for normal users.  I was 
just setting up a new Win2008 Server and noticed I could extract files 
to c:\geronimo, but did not have the rights as a user to modify/delete 
files (just create them) until I edited the default permissions for the 
directory.  Maybe this is your problem on Vista...
