[RESOLVED] Store information within program
I'm makeing a program that users will be able to have run on start up. In this program I need to create temporary files in their My Pictures folder. Unfortunatly sometimes this folder does not exist or user's profile has changed and the Evironment.user is no longer accurate. So what I would like to do is have the program check to see if the My Pictures folder exsists. If it does... wonderful. If it doesn't I have the user choose a directory where the temporary files can be created. My question is, is there a way that I can take the users chosen directory and be able to use it again next time the program starts up? I would like to do this without creating another file in which I would store the information (i.e. create a text file with the directory path in it). The reason is because the people that use this program don't have privlages to write anywhere. So I would like have the chosen directory be stored in the program if it is possible.
Thanks in advance.
