Currently, S+ using the program folder to save the configuration, like:
Strokesplus.xml, StrokesPlus.lua.

When we want to uninstall/and reinstall S+ again, these config file will be removed, we lost all settings!

We need upgrade the program, save these file under %user%\Application Data Folder.

Anyway, we should ask the user to keep or remove the settings during unsintall.

To be honest, I think I'm going to stop publishing the MSI packages..it's just a pain in the ass that I don't want to deal with =)

Not saying I'm going to just yet..but I might! MSI is supposed to leave modified files alone, and did when I tested; but I rarely do anything with the packages as they're such a pain to work with for such a small return.

It's not much better for the ZIP archives. Overwriting those config files by accident is quite possible. Caution is advised.

Good point. I'll make two sets of ZIPs from now on (or until I get around to a making simple, all inclusive installer); one for the whole app, one with only files changed for that release.

Added in 1.9.1:

Ability to specify a custom location for StrokesPlus.xml (main config file); StrokesPlus.lua and Language.xml are derived from the command-line parameter so the config must be name be "StrokesPlus.xml". See http://www.strokesplus.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=347 for more details

Beginning with 2.5.0 a new installer is in place which doesn't overwrite user-modified files.
