 +====== java.io.IOException:​ Could not get shell folder ID list ======
 +If you're getting this message, you probably have recently replaced a hard drive or removed a flash drive that you had previously configured for some personal settings or any number of other things than can confuse Windows and/or the Java VM that ECMLink works under.
 +
 +To confirm, pull up regedit and go here:
 +
 +  HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders
 +
 +You should see a bunch of items that start with "​%USERPROFILE%"​. ​ If you see items that start with something like "​D:​\"​ or "​C:​\",​ that may be the source of your problem.
 +
 +To correct this, you can either delete all those hard coded values or change them to more appropriate values if you want.
 +
 +You may want to first right click on the "User Shell Folders"​ item and select "​Export"​ to save a copy of the current values before you go messing with them.
