Well no, I don't have to read anything in that directory, I don't understand why, but it works correctly with administrator permissions. It works for me on that machine.

Thanks.

Yes, same error.

NOTE: 
Ok... I know what the mistake is. I was running the app without having admin rights.
It is necessary?

No, it shouldn't, unless you want to read/write to the C:\ProgramFiles folder

If you move the roms folder at the root of f (so: F:\ROMS) do you get the same error?

I'll try it this afternoon and let you know.
Thanks.

Hi, my mGalaxy version is 8.5.0.0


I have tried to update the MAME ROMS database, but it always gives me an error.
The full path of the ROMS folder is F:/EMU/MAME/ROMS
And this is the error:

Code: [Select]
Message: La ruta de acceso no tiene un formato válido.

The folder for mGalaxy is F:/EMU/mGalaxy

Thanks in advance and sorry for my english.

Mi computer is configured in Spanish (Spain).
