I registered especially for this thread :)
That's the reason why I don't buy commercial products anymore (ok, i also have pretty much all i need, but a good harmonizer).
The way they do thing is just disgusting, they store your presets in %appdata%, store preferences in the registry, store "confidential" stuff somewhere else, lets not even talk about those who use both %alluser% and %currentuser%, and common files and other bulls**t.
It seems they absolutely want things to be out of user's control.
I know M$ guidelines and they s*ck.
It's like they think you'll never have to re-install their os, or test another one.
I only have portable applications on my pc, but I have to create nsis launchers for everything.
I can format my pc (which I barely do today, thanks to ghosting), I recently tested windows 7, I didn't have to do anything, all my firefox bookmarks, cookies, all of my programs including music etc were working as is, no need to re-install anything.
But I know, Im doing all wrong, the good way is to scatter the sh*t everywhere.
