trying to use newest version, but after install, i get the following error when trying to launch app:
"Can't Start the application because files cannot be created in the system temp folder. Please check to be sure the TMP environment variable names a folder that exists and has write permission."
Program installed = pf2p3.exe
I have administrator privileges (full) on NT SP6.
What gives?

This message was probably displayed because your system temp folder is set to something like X: (a device name without a directory name). For some reason, The Panorama Factory does not like to have the temp folder set to a device name without any directory name.

Happily, there is a simple workaround. Create a new directory, e.g. Temp, in X: and change your temp directory to be X:\Temp.
