[FIX] CamStudio says it's recording, but it doesn't actually start recording.

I've found through trial and error that CamStudio is picky about the chosen file directory for saving a video in progress.

This setting, which is saved in the hidden configuration file, is set by clicking 'Options', 'Program Options', 'Directory for Recording', 'Use User Specified Directory', where you would then choose a directory on your machine for saving the video after recording.

If I choose a file directory that is buried in folders somewhere in 'My Documents', the software doesn't record.

If I choose a simple directory for saving, like the 'My Videos Library', the software records with no problems.
