Settings not saved

#1 Post by macias » 08.02.2010, 08:37

Hi,

Thank you for great program. I have found a bug though -- settings are not saved. The problem is FC tries to save settings into Program Files/FreeCommander directory which is denied. And even if it were possible I think it is a bad idea to save per user settings into global location. It should go to Documents and Settings directory, that way it will be possible to customize FC per user.

Ver. 2009.02a, Win7 32-bit.

Cheers,

Karol

Use "Specific for user - "Application Data" folder" option (under EXTRAS > SETTINGS > START PROGRAM ).

Thank you.

a) I don't think making option for one global settings in nowadays systems (multiuser) make any sense)
b) per user option should be default
c) changing it to per user does not work -- FC still tries to save settings into Program Files

Check your fcstart.ini. My content is
[Start]
FreeCommanderIniDir=CSIDL_APPDATA

Try to close FC, edit fcstart.ini and then start FC.

:-) Since the content of this file was the same, I just quited FC and run it again. And now I can save settings.

So two first points still holds and the (c) is FC should change the directory for settings on fly.
