Summary0002191: FRED (tries to) save its config data to C:\Windows
DescriptionReally, who thought THAT was a good idea? It would be (slightly) better if it was trying to write it to its install dir, or a new entry in %APPDATA%.
TagsNo tags attached.

Blame V. It's always done that.

On Windows 7 the file ends up in \AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Windows though.

I'm pretty sure that this isn't the case anymore. FRED now writes its configuration data to the registry and FSO uses %APPDATA% so this can be marked as resolved.
