Personalisation of path to star data

    OS Windows XP: When downloading and "installing" additional star data files by
    Stellarium they are stored in a subdirectory of <user data="">. I would like
    Stellarium to find them in another place. How can I do that? Can I use a
    special "key=value" in config.ini?

    For that matter, I'd like to relocate all files to a single directory, config
    files, data files, plugins. This would make stellarium portable!

    You can use the "--user-dir" command line parameter to set an alternative path
    to the user directory.

    Ohh wow! That is just so cool. As cool as re-assigning directories can be..
    Reminds me of the personalized tech support you used to get in computer stores
    of the 1970's.

    This effectively makes Stellarium portable for me. So thanks for that info.

    I am now using this: "C:\Program Files\Stellarium\stellarium.exe" --safe-
    mode --user-dir data2
    as my command line.

    And data2 is the additional directory I made inside C:\Program
    Files\Stellarium. data2 now contains ALL the files previously in the other
    user directory, C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Application
    plugins, configs, settings, solarsystem.ini,
    starsconfig.json, oculars, telescopes, everything.

    Looking back into the 10.2 documentation I see it right there on page 26!
    Where's the facepalm icon?****
