Echoshack and MS Windows 8

Just to let you know that the current version of Echoshack will not work with MS Windows 8. I am in process of making some changes so a new version will be coming soon.

If you are using the pre-release of Windows 8 then a quick fix is to go to C:\Users\your name\ and create a folder called Documents. Then make a copy the folder found with Explorer in Documents called Echolink and paste it to C:\Users\your name\.

The issue is that Windows 8 does not have a 'My Document' folder any more it is now just 'Documents' and the system variable called %USERPROFILE% does not point to Documents in Win XP, Vista, Win7 it did.

If you do not want to wait you can email me at 'webmaster' this site domain name and I will send you a zipped copy of a fixed exe file.

The Echolink program works OK with Windows 8 its just Echoshack with the bug.
