js,

When you install DesignCAD the installer asks if you want to install for everyone or "just for me."

If you select "just for me" you can install the program anywhere. This gets you away from the protected Program" folder.

I always install in

C:\DesignCAD VXX.XX\Program

This ensures there will be no conflicts with other versions.

I then install things like the keyboard files, materials, etc. - anything else that I create in

C:\DesignCAD

Macros in

C:\DecignCAD\Macros

Then, for all future versions, I just set "Options/Options/File Locations" entries to point to the C:\DesignCAD folder. All versions use the same macros, keyboard, materials, etc.

With this scheme you will have no conflicts with Windows when you try to save configurations and such.
