Ventrilo Pro - SHGetSpecialFolderPath failed
Vent Pro worked fine all day yesterday. This morning when I attempted to run, I receive the following error - SHGetSpecialFolderPath failed. Program aborting.

I have always run in Admin Mode. The error appears even if I try and run in normal mode.

Searched Google for answers and I can't find anything helpful. Anyone else experiencing problems?

Side note: Vent3 works just fine.

are you trying to run it from the desktop icon?

try using file explorer and navigate to the ventrilo folder and run it from there. ventrilopro.exe

if that works then there is a problem with the desktop file info. also try creating a new desktop shortcut.

here's more info on possible solutions for the folder path error:

Hey I'm having the same problem w/ connecting to v3.0.1. I get the "Msg: Contacting Server." My Router is a Linksys WRT54G. I am very computer illiterate. I'm random video chat guessing that I'm having the same problem as this guy, but I wasn't sure which "Advanced" option he is referring to. I'm really just asking for a possible random video chat brief step by step on fixing this problem. I run on Windows if that helps. Thanks for the information.
