I have EPG collector running on Win 8.1 and no matter where I put the ini file for collection it won't proceed with a scheduled task for collecting the data. 

Am I missing something completely obvious or is it likely to be some weird permissions thing? 

If I open up my current ini file with EPGCenter.exe I can run the process manually successfully without issue. It's solely when I try and use a scheduled task and the EPGCollector.exe that it fails. 

Is it perhaps because the install isn't in the default Geekzone/EPG Collector folder structure? (I don't have the Geekzone folder)? I haven't tried putting it back as that thought just came over me.

In the EPG Collector log it lists the path to the ini file it is trying to open.

Is that path correct?

Really? Hmm, will have to check when I get home from work. Never even noticed that looking at the logs.
