Hi John

The key to this may be that you //moved// the ZTW.INI:

>- Moved the %AppData%\ZTreeWin\ZTW.INI, ZTW.ZAM >and ZTW.HST files to "C:\Program Files\ZTreeWin"

This type of move probably maintained the permissions on ZTW.INI that were inherited from %appdata% granting you full control on that file, in spite of its new location.

A move within an NTFS filesystem tends to just change the parent directory and maintain everything else about the file. Moving using Win Explorer might make the file re-inherit permissions from the new parent directory, depending on Windows version. I remember back in Windows XP/2003 it needed "Simple File Sharing" to make this happen but at some later version or became the default, but only for moves done by Windows Explorer.
