Description

This is not really a bug but a missing feature.
I'm running Filezilla as an unprivileged user on
Windows XP.
First the program can not open the log file, then my
preferences cannot be saved.
The problem is that Filezilla writes user specific data
in the installation directory (as c:\Programs
Files\Filezilla) instead of %userprofile%\Filezilla.

Thanks and regards Manlio Perillo

Try installing using the registry for storing settings
instead of the filezilla.xml file... If you don't have
enough rights to install, use the zip version and unzip it
to a folder you have write access to instead of c:\program
files.

FileZilla 3 will store its settings in e.g. c:\Documents and
settings\someuser\Application data\FileZilla

Don't think this will be implemented in FZ2 so you basically
have to wait for FZ3 I'm afraid.
