A place for shared ini-file

Posted: 07-06-2006, 10:52 AM
Hello, All!

We have a problem with the default Vista security settings. We need a place
to save our ini file with setting and we want to allow any user to write to
this file. Previously we could use "C:\Documents and Settings\All
Users\Application Data" folder for this purpose but now even an
Administrator cannot even open this folder and folder
"C:\Users\Default\AppData" is read only for regular user. Could you give us
advice for any place where we can store our settings on Vista sysem?

With best regards, Andrey Smolev. E-mail: Andrey.Smolev@Mail.ru

I'm just a developer and not from MS. I'm wondering why you couldn't just
put the ini file in the program folder?

Hello, Bernie!

The point is to provide read/write access to a user without any additional
rights. A regular user doesn't have write permission to the "Program Files"
folder

Sorry. I understood the point but didn't know about write permissions to
program files. Would it be acceptable for each user to have their own ini
file? I've a few apps of my own that look like they would be broken by this
too.

Hello, Bernie!

It's posible to put some of the settings to separate files for every user
(for example in the folder "c:\users\<current user name>\AppData"), but we
still need a major file for general settings that would be accessable for
everyone.
