This did not work for me after a fresh install due
to IO restrictions set to read only. I'm not sure if
it was like that in 3.6 too, or if it is a side effect
of moving the Insert Menu to user documents. In any
case, there is no mention of it in 1.5.8.10.8.

Tested on Windows 7 64-bit although I suspect it doesn't
matter, as it's a permission setting of POV-Ray itself.

It would be convenient if it just worked. Of course,
a malicious virus could then spread by overwriting the
pov files in the insert menu folder. ;)

I also stumbled across a parse error in shapes.pov,
but that was already reported as FS#82.

No such problem on XP with 3.7 beta 39
(but shapes.pov is buggy anyway)

My PVENGINE.ini got
[Permitted Output Paths]
1=%PROFILEDIR%\Insert Menu

I did not play with it, but maybe it has some effects.
(I cannot remember if the install was "user only" or system wide)

[Permitted Input Paths]
1=%INSTALLDIR%
2=%PROFILEDIR%
3=%FONTDIR%

Hmm ... I don't see these two sections in my pvengine.ini.

Manually adding the Insert Menu path solved the problem.

Not sure why they were missing. I did a system wide
install using the same account I start it with.
