    one or two minor issues

    Hi,Thanks again - I am settling down my new W864SSD and have re-installed many of my old programs and have one or two minor issues - one such is BG Blitz by Frank Berger in Germany it is the best Backgammon program bar none that i have triedI have a licence file for it which normally works by just copying it into the BGBlitz folder in my program files but when i try it on my SSD I geta message access denied - how do I get around that.
    Second is one I've had since I first installed W864 that is that the @ key and the " are swapped around - I've tried the usual things like ensuring I have the correct keyboard etc selected - I have The following showing in Control Panel > Clock, language and Region >Language - Windows Display Language :Enabled
    Keyboard Layout : United Kingdom

    Which has been the settings I have used before in W764

    Appreciate if you can help on these two
