Local Data Source Defaulting to Same Location

Hi there,

Could the default location for "Local Data Source" point to the C:\Users\%username%\Roaming\Devolutions\RemoteDesktopManagerFree\ location instead of C:\Users\%username%\Local\Devolutions\RemoteDesktopManagerFree\ ?

The reason being, when the application is installed and preconfigured for a default profile, the settings should be stored in Roaming in order for this to be copied across to new profiles. The Local folder is not copied across from the default user profile.

So each time a new user logs into the pc the default location is C:\Users\Administrator\Local\Devolutions\RemoteDesktopManagerFree\
This folder is empty for new users logging into the pc.

Only the Roaming folder settings are applied from the "Default User" location but RemoteDesktopManagerFree does not point to the Roaming folder.

Every new user that logs onto the pc is prompted for a "Local Data Source". Even when going into the settings and changing the location to a persistent folder for e.g. C:\RemoteConfig\Connections.db and then applying this configuration to the Default User profile, the settings are not carried across as all the settings are stored in the "Local" folder for the current user/Administrator and are not copied across for new user profiles.

Hopefully this is a simple change.
