Minor correction.
When the program is first run, it writes settings to:
Documents and Settings/User/Application Data/Juan M. Aguirregabiria
However, if you copy the INI file created in that directory to the application folder, the program will subsequently only read/write settings to the application folder. The Application Data/Juan M. Aguirregabiria folder can then be deleted and will not be recreated.

There is a new version which is now zipped with .ini file. It just needs to be renamed dircmp0.ini to dircmp.ini.

Creates a folder (Juan M. Aguirregabiria) in Documents and Settings\UserName\Application Data where DirCmp.ini is placed.

Now...I switched to Win7x64 and can't test this (and my powerpro is barely hanging on there...)! :(

Let's just launch it and see how it goes! :)

Edit: it appears it works...need more testing.

@I am Baas: are you sure you first renamed the .ini file from the application's directory?
