you are right, there are some sticking points in RTC installation. With Windows
Vista/7/8 there is that strange read/write privilege problem. When you're using
a 64 bit variant there are several places for putting the RTC-DLL
(Windows\System32 and Windows\SysWOW64) - but not all of them work. So your
solution to put it into BeamConstructs working directory is a good one.
Unfortunately we can't/will not put the RTC-DLL into our setup for proper
installation since this is part of the RTC driver package and users have to be
free in their decision which version to use.

I just joined the list and was having the same problem with an RTC4
card. I think it was caused by the program not having read permission
for the correction and firmware files. I put copies in the OpenAPC
directory (which required administrator access on Win 7) and now
everything is working fine. I also put a copy of the rtcdll.dll file
there just for good measure though I don't know if that was necessary.
