This is an old issue brought up before in the Bug Tracker, but here it goes again.
If on the Start In: field of TFLM shortcut, I redirect the data files to be stored in
directory, the application ignores that and still puts them into the %ProgramFiles%\TheFormLetterMachine directory just the same.
Honestly, for Windows 2K, XP, & Vista compatibility
, the app should be putting them in the %APPDATA%\TheFormLetterMachine directory by default, which would work for me. The Start In: field still should be able to override this default. (I thought the MS foundation class libraries behaved this way by default, but I may be wrong.)
On an unrelated note, I'm bring this up now because I had to recently lock down my machine(s) to prevent innocent-looking spam URLs from indirectly linking to exe files that try to download and install on my system. Clearly, this is a new trick by the spammers to install back doors on machines. But I now have to grant access exceptions to directories like %ProgramFiles%\TheFormLetterMachine and "%ProgramFiles%\Clipboard Help+Spell" to circumvent this security to get these programs to still work.
