Just a couple of comments and a couple of questions.

1) No one has mentioned (that I have seen) where the Rootsmagic.ini
file is located. I had to search my harddrive to find it. It was in:

C:\Documents and Settings\George\Application Data\RootsMagic
(at least the "good" one was there, 2762 bytes).

2) There are 4 other copies of Rootsmagic.ini on my computer, and they
seem to be incomplete copies (only 88 bytes):

a) C:\Documents and Settings\Default Users\Application Data\RootsMagic
b) C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\RootsMagic
c) C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application Data\RootsMagic
d) C:\Documents and Settings\Application Data\RootsMagic

2) WHY does Rootsmagic put the "good" copy in 1) above, instead of
in the Rootsmagic folder? The reason I'm asking is that most
do put their .INI files in the same folder/directory as the actual program.

3) WHY does the program put the .INI file in so many different places?
