i keep getting this error message every time i try to start the program, and i cant find any piece of usefeul information online that will help me. ive tried running as admin, disabling firewalls and uninstalling and reinstalling, etc, and i just cant get it to work at all.

Failed to create directory 'C:\Users\AppData\Roaming\Ventrilo'. Program aborting.

this is a permissions issue.
what kind of account is it? limited or Admin?
same account that installed ventrilo?

yeah, same account. only have one account. as i said, i tried running as admin though it shouldnt be necessary because i am the admin, but it still does not work

try this:

[FONT=Verdana]Vista/Win-7 ‘User Account Control’[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana] [/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]If you are running Vista/Windows-7, try turning off ‘User Account Control’ located in Windows Control-Panel/User Accounts[/FONT]

Tried that too. I've tried reinstalling, repairing, running as admin, downloading with different browsers, disabling firewalls, disabling user account control, basically anything I could think of. I'm at a loss, and need some tech support badly

Oh MY GOD ! After 2 months of breaking my brain i have finally found the solution for the problem of FAILED to create directory.....

The solution is:

1 ) Go in the Windows Control panel/ User account control.
2 ) CREATE A NEW USER ACCOUNT and set this account at the Administrator status ( same window )
3 ) Switch to this new administrator account.
4) Click ventrilo icon on the desktop and... MIRACLE : it works !
