Split RDM config to non-local appdata

Would it be possible to store the application configuration in %APPDATA% instead of %LOCALAPPDATA%? Many of our primary support personnel do not have an assigned desk so they roam freely between roughly 30 different machines. And on every machine they have to redo their application configuration because their new machine has no appdata\Devolutions folder.

I understand the reasons for not storing the database cache in the roaming profile, and I am very happy with that. However, I would like for my application preferences to follow me around so when I login to a new pc, I still have my usual settings and configured database sources.

You could install a Portable RDM on a Network Share.
Create a file ..\RemoteDesktopManager\Override.cfg
with this content, so every user gets his own Profile:

.\Data\%username%\

I actually did't know that.
I just changed our RDM override.cfg(central DFS location) and it works great smile
Thanks.

For those that need multiple installs of RDM, the portable mode of operation is great to handle this as well.

Last tidbit of information, %APPDATA% is indeed used, but only when running under terminal services.

Thanks guys!
