As a Mac user, I'm not very familiar with Windows 8 (or Windows 10 Preview) and I hope that someone with more knowledge can answer this question .

Can a Java app (like in this case CafeTran) be installed in c:\CafeTran Espresso or only in a path like \\psf\Home\Documents\CafeTran Espresso (which probably translates to something like ‘c:\Users\Hans\Documents\CafeTran Espresso’)?

What would be a clever default path for the installation software to suggest?

A user need not know where or how a program is installed, just clic on the installation icon and let do it.


If you have some problems, with 95% probability is cause using an operating system to be released in a year!

Do you want to use CafeTran or just playing with Windows 10?


Anyway, CafeTran, AFAIK, should work in Mac too...

It's the suggested default installation path that I'm worried about Oct 5, 2014

I've done a quick test to check whether CafeTran will run at all:

I think that the path that is suggested by the installation program isn't correct for Windows 8 (or Windows 10). It should rather be something like: c:\Users\Name\Documents\CafeTran Espresso

The correct path is C:\Program Files\CafeTran Expresso or C:\Program Files (x86)\CafeTran Expresso. Use the latter path if CafeTran is a 32 bit software (I don't know) but is to be installed on a 64 bit Windows.

If that doesn't work, run the installer using the "Run as Administrator" option. If that doesn't work either, then use the Documents folder you mentioned – a crutch solution, though.
