Uniformed path for System-Config in Windows
Currently, the path where the system-wide rsb.conf lies is not specified under windows. (see: http://docs.cor-lab.org/rsb-manual/trunk/html/specification-config.html#effective-configuration ; PREFIX is not clearly defined).
Some proposals would be:
Straightforward but maybe too messy and not clear enough...
Would have a userprofile\.config\rsb.conf design, but beeing effective for every user (Public) making it system-wide
It is more or less a proposal derived from:
Actually "C:\Users\Public" is only intended for documents but with the ".config" subdirectory it should be a nice and clear like in the home directory.
Nope, the preferred path is %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\<MyCompany>\<MyApp> (see the link above)
Honestly, the only applications using .config in my local system are gitk, npm and rsb...
But I thought it was decided to use USERPROFILE\.config since it is the currently used directory and a change would imply adjustments on productive systems.
However, if we want to decide to use the usual win way, we would have to choose something like:
For system-wide config:
For user config:
Maybe the Roaming folder would be better than Local, as the configs get synchronized when a server is used to login.
