Default P95 - Windows 7 - Unable to open log file

Never seen this before. Just installed P95, set my preferences, and saw these errors:

ERROR: Unable to open spool file.
Unable to open log file.

Worker window is simply waiting for work.

Has anybody else seen this before?

Make sure that you have installed Prime95 in a folder other than Program Files. Win7 and later does not like files writing data to Program Files. Try giving it its own folder on the desktop or under the root.
