    RULE #1

    Never write any program that writes data to its own installation directory. This was ok for Windows 95 programmers but not for modern day operating systems where there are special directories designated for this. A well designed application does not require administrative rights to operate and splits its data into static data and roaming/user data.

    The intended directory (Windows) is by default [X]:\Program Files ....\ which should be the default *unless* the user chooses something else rather than being forced to use something else.

    I much preferred the simpler days, when users actually had full control over their own systems...

    I very much dislike the "new paradigm" that scatters files all over hell's half-acre!
