My 6 year old baby girl loves playing with this package. Many thanks.

Just unzip the folder then put the period in the alternative saving directory, then at the bottom left hand corner change settings from current user to all users. You don't have to move the .cfg file that way. It'll already be in the app folder.

This appears to be new behaviour in 0.9.16. In 0.9.14, it writes to the app folder by default. I will update the synopsis and the version number as well. Thanks!

By default, it writes its data to the windows user folders. The path can be changed with the configuration program - selecting an existing folder in the TuxPaint folder (without any slashes at the beginning). Then it is truly portable.

Btw - nice prog, not only for kids, loads fast and has most of the needed tools onboard :-)
