DescriptionCurrently GeoSetter creates a Directory within "My Documents" to store its preferences.

This Directory should rather be located in "Documents and Settings\User\Local Settings".
TagsNo tags attached.

Maybe you're right, but it's a little bit too late to change it... I think it's not too bad to save it in your documents path...

Well, personnally, I usually hate programs that tend to take my "My Documents" folder for their settings. Most of these programs usually get deleted within the next minutes. Problem is GeoSetter does not deserve this.

Suppose you define a new location. Can't the program :
1 - Check for the settings in the new location
2 - If they are not find, check within My Documents and copy them to the new location
3 - If there are still no settings, create new ones in the new location

Ok. But I think I can do it like this:
1. I'll check the old location and take it without copying if it exists
2. If it doesn't exist, I'll use the new location.

That means that GeoSetter will use "User\Local Settings" if it wasn't installed already and it will use "User\Local Settings" if it has been copied there manually on an existing installation.

The settings will now be stored in APPDATA, not in LOCAL APPDATA. I hope this is ok for you.
