Settings stored in " Local Settings"

Post by Fragment on Mon Aug 30, 2010 12:03 pm

Thanks for the nice program.

The configuration file for the user settings (user.conf) is stored below the Local Settings subfolder in the profile (Lokale Einstellungen in German).

Contents of this subfolder are not saved along with the rest of the profile, and the settings are not retained between logons with roaming folders on Windows terminal servers.

Any solution except some login-script-kung-fu?

Hi, thanks for using OWAtray.

Unfortunately MSDN makes the whole issue of user settings &
roaming as clear as mud and I don't feel comfortable changing a core setting as an experiment.

Thanks for your input.

Thanks for the quick reply. I found a workaround we can use without issues.

OWAtray will load the configuration file from Application Data (I think, Anwendungsdaten in German) instead of Local Settings\Application Data if can be found there. The workaround for the issue is to copy the folder The_drunken_bakery from Local Settings\Applicaton Data to Application Data in the profile. The files in that directory will be saved.

A quick way to find the relevant directories is to enter the variables %appdata% resp %localappdata% (doesn't exist pre-Vista) into the address bar of a windows explorer window.
