* An option to have Quickpar create scratch files in
the directory where you have the par files (and not in
the windows directory) or prefreably disable it
entirely. (I love the new verification layout, much
better than the old, but i have to use the old since i
don't want unncessary guff in the windows directory)

* An option to remove the "Priority" option from the
taskbar menu.

* A link on your homepage directly to this tracker ;)

    When you refer to "scratch files" I assume you mean the
    cache files which QuickPar uses to record details as to which
    files have been verified.

    Are they really being stored in your "C:\Windows" folder?
    They are supposed to be being stored in the "C:\Documents
    and Settings\yourname\Local Settings\Application
    Data\QuickPar" folder (or whatever folder Windows specifies
    as the place to store local application data for a user).

    Well, its in subdirectories under windows, but i'd still
    call it "in windows", the path is:

    C:\WINDOWS\Local Settings\Application Data\QuickPar

    And unfortunately its not a text string in the program,
    otherwise we could hexedit it :)

    The path where QuickPar stores cache files is determined by
    settings in the Windows Registry.

    If you open Regedit and look under HKEY_CURRENT_USER
    for "Software\\Microsoft\\Windows\\CurrentVersion\\Explorer\\ Shell Folders" (or if that does not exist look
    for "Software\\Microsoft\\Windows\\CurrentVersion\\Explorer\\ User Shell Folders") and the look for either the value "Local
    AppData" or "AppData". If these paths contain elements with
    % marks around them, then they get replaced with the value
    from the corresponding environment variable.

    If you don't want local application data to be stored in a
    folder beneath the Windows folder, then you can edit those
    registry keys to point somewhere else on your hard disk.

    I generally want application data to be stored where the
    application is installed, except for Quickpar where i would
    like it stored where the par files are. Doesn't seem
    possible be editing the registry, eh? But thanks for taking
    to time to tell me.
