This is a very important step in the VAFS installation and operation procedure that seems to be overlooked or ignored. Most of you that read this, will most likely have been referred here. Please follow the instructions carefully, as this solution is the cause of about 98% of the VAFS user trouble.
  • Uninstall VAFS ( if already installed ).
    • Side Note: Be sure to delete ALL associated files and folders, too!
  • Right-click the VAFS5Setup.exe, and choose Run as administrator.
  • Once installed, Go to the VAFS5 folder. Default:
    • 32 Bit - C:\Program Files\VAFS5\VAFS5.exe
    • 64 Bit - C:\Program Files (x86)\VAFS5\VAFS5.exe
  • Right-click VAFS5.exe, click Properties and go to the Compatibility tab.
  • Make sure the box for "Run this program as an administrator", is checked
    • 20151124_compatibility_tab.png
  • Start the program normally
If you still experience trouble after following this, then please start a new topic or return to your original topic, and continue the troubleshooting process.
