    We're having some issues with the underlying access database in P3 not updating after a tag session. I can export individual tag sessions, then open them in Excel or a text editor, but when I open P3.mdb, there are no records from those sessions. I'm new to P3, so maybe I'm missing something obvious?

    If you are using P3 on a Windows 7 computer with an user account that does not have administrator privileges, Windows 7 will quietly move the P3.mdb file to a Virtual Store location. That can generally be found here: 

    This occurs because C:\Program Files is a protected directory and usually only administrators have permissions to write to it. Windows 7 quietly copies the P3.mdb file to a directory where you do have permissions to write so the program keeps working correctly.
