Hi,

I've just reinstalled after an HDD failure, installing Frodo RC2 in WIndows 8. My previous install worked perfectly so I'm unsure as to what is happening now.

Most times I try to change skin it tells me that the skin is missing some files. AeonMQ4 is the skin I'm trying to apply but it happens on several skins and, as I'm using the same skins I used previously (and downloading them from the repository) I don't believe its a skin issue. I thought maybe it is a permissions issue so I've made sure that both my user and administrator have full access to both the AppData folder and the Programfiles folder.

I'll see if I can attach the log file to this, but does this sound familiar to anyone?

Thanks Smile
I think the important part of the log is

Most likely you have permissions set incorrectly. What does your log say ?
Please upload a debug log
