Disk File Access


useMango™ reports errors relating to disk file access (e.g. file not accessible).

Many organisational computing environments have policies that define file access rights and restrictions to various disk locations. If useMangoTM attempts to work with a file in a location that is restricted then the application’s operation is likely to be impaired.


It’s necessary to provide a disk storage location that useMango™ can use for configuration and operational data. By default, useMango™ uses a folder under the current user’s roaming profile application data directory. If access to this folder is restricted, or otherwise causes problems, an alternative location can be specified:

  1. Open the Windows registry editor
  2. Find the key at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Infuse Consulting\Mango [or HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Infuse Consulting\Mango if using the 64-bit version of regedit ].
  3. The WorkingDirectoryPath entry determines the location in local or network disk storage used by useMangoTM. Edit the entry value to give the special folder name or path of your preferred storage location. Example values are:
    • ApplicationData - the user’s roaming profile application data directory
    • LocalApplicationData - the user’s profile application data directory on the local drive
    • CommonApplicationData - the shared application data directory for all users of the local machine
    • C:\data - a fixed location on the C drive
    • E:\username\appdata - a fixed location on an extension drive assigned to letter E
    • \nas\users\0123\data - a fixed location on a network shared drive

Administrator privileges are generally required to modify registry key values within the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE key.
