Windows 10 (and perhaps Windows 8) unique problem.
Windows 10 introduces a "feature" called Virtual Store. This "feature" causes grief for both Glasses Reader and Glasses Inventory in that when you make your initial options settings and wish to change them later the change will not happen as far as the program is concerned. To disable Virtual Store copy the lines below between the "=============" lines into note pad and save the file as a .REG file (not a .TXT (text) file).
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
Now double click the file and allow it to run. Virtual Store will be disabled.
