Wrong Location of database

Postby nepher » Sat Apr 14, 2007 8:43 pm

GreatNews is a great software, thanks for this work.
Only one major design flaw: the database file is located in the install dir. This has at least three major problems:

1 - Users expect the data to be in application data folder. Not doing so result in possible data losses, since users usually backup that folder, you should not wander around the pc to find other relevant data.

2 - Users profiles are not possible, thus preventing use on multi accounts systems-

3 - This design is not compatible with Windows Vista. Infact in account control mode, programs can't write in their install dirs.

Hope to see this fixed soon, it is a major problem and I can't believe to see a v1 released with this design approach implemented.
