  • * Installer: Now always installs so that the application data are written to the user-specific path, i.e. to %appdata%\XYplorer, independently of the choice you make here:
    (1) Install for anyone using this computer (Default)
        = Application data in %appdata%\XYplorer
        = startmenu icons in
          \Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs
    (2) Install just for me
        = Application data in %appdata%\XYplorer
        = startmenu icons in
          \Documents and Settings\<user>\Start Menu\Programs
    This mixed strategy appears to be the best overall choice in that it avoids more of possible confusion and frustration than other strategies depending on the user's system and its configuration and the user's geek level. It also seems to be the most common practice.

    Tip: To have the application data stored under the XYplorer application folder simply set key "Path" in startup.ini to nothing:
    If now XYplorer.ini is found in the application folder, the data are stored right there. If not then they are stored in the subfolder Data.
