Several users have had issues with PhotoStructure’s use of PowerShell to gather system and volume metadata, and, frankly, debugging Windows permission issues is a nightmare as both system and security configurations vary wildly, and are almost impossible to reproduce on another machine.
For the users where the PowerShell troubleshooting instructions don’t suffice, there could be a powershell-less mode of PhotoStructure that
removes volume-is-almost-full health checks (these prevent big library imports from filling up your disk, which can cause problems)
removes support for cross-platform libraries (due to the lack of volume uuids)
removes support for hidden file and directory determination (which lets PhotoStructure automatically skip importing hidden files and directories)
removes the ability for PhotoStructure to run child processes at a lower priority, to prevent library imports from making systems too busy for the user
This is a fairly large change to PhotoStructure, and I don’t know how many people are being affected by it, but this feature request’s votes should help determine relative interest.
