No, that's not about using Vista. It doesn't matter what the Operating
System is, if that O/S does not allow ntpd to write to any specific
directory. It's an O/S permissions thing and you need to configure both
ntpd and the O/S to allow ntpd to use a writeable directory into which
you can place this file.
