please put all the config files into the same folder the program is,under "config" .

now it's under C:\Documents and Settings\user name\Application Data\Avant Browser for every user!for what?

it can really be like that:C:\Program Files\Avant Browser\config

you could make a folder for the skins there too.

Why? I like the system now. I get all of my configurations. If another user signs in, they can use their settings. They are moved to the application folder for a reason. That is why Microsoft made such a folder. Also, this allows you to keep you settings when upgrading.

The skins are already in the AB PF folder.

With respect to the settings file, this can actually cause permissions problems on NT based systems such as 2K, XP etc (which invariably lead to the program not running and/or not running correctly, which then leads to a ton of posts on the forums about "being stupid enough to use a folder that could potentially be blocked by the systems administrator and/or third party programs") and thus, placing it in the AD folder is a much better place.

And why not save config to both paths? Or with option to choose...

Try backup config files of 3 users, even in hidden folder...

I'm still unclear on how this works better than what is in place. :?
