Stop creation of InstallInfo.dat in AppData?
« on: October 10, 2007, 11:23:27 AM »
I'm a new user of SC and I love what I see so far, but I was wondering if it's possible to get it to not create %AppData%\DonationCoder\Keys\DonationCoder_ScreenshotCaptor_InstallInfo.dat each time it is run?

I've tried updating the ConfigDir.ini file to force the use of the current directory but each time I start SC it recreates the file.

It's not a big deal but I prefer it if the portable applications I use are not writing to the host machine(s).

thats a really good request -- what you see is a recent change to better comply with VISTA and MS desires, but as you say in the portable case that is kind of annoying.

let me see if i can at least add an option in the special ConfigDir.ini file to not do that.
