Clearly the "H:" is site specific.  I take it that you have not taught
Windows that the H: is where application data should exist?

My question is: how are we supposed to know where to keep the file?  Windows
itself has calls we can make to find the "correct" location for these data
files, and indeed this is what we use.  Do you have a specific suggestion
for what we should do to determine this?  (ie, would simply an option in the
INI file work?  But then, how do you manage the creation and distribution of
the modified INI file?)
