Redirecting the userdata tree directory on pre-Vista OSes
« on: October 17, 2007, 12:03 PM »
... for [V1.16.X, the user] database ... will go into the user's My Documents directory if that has been configured as the location in the program config.  For Vista, this is now default.  For XP, it still defaults to the program directory, but you can manually change it by editing ConfigDir.ini in the program directory.
So if I create the file %ProgramFiles%\TheFormLetterMachine\configdir.ini and place the string: %APPDATA%\TheFormLetterMachine inside, will that redirect the userdata directory for all Windows accounts to their respective My Documents directories?  I'm assuming it will create the require directory in My Documents if it doesn't already exist.

This feature seems to be missing in the V1.16.01 Help file.

Yes that should be the case in CLIPBOARD HELP+SPELL,

but if you are talking about The Form Lettter Machine, it doesnt yet have configdir.ini support.  I'll add it on next release.
