      • Default Directory for Windows: %%ROOTDRIVE%%:\Documents and Settings%%USERNAME%%\Application Data\Spark

        Thanks wroot. Downloaded spark-installer.exe.zip, unzipped and installed as an Administrator using the command-line:

        C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin\java.exe -jar C:\Downloaded\spark-installer.jar

        I can confirm that this version DOES indeed place the Spark application data folder in the correct location. I did notice that the following directories were still being created in %USERPROFILE% though, and these should perhaps move to %APPDATA% as well:

        .jmf
        .jmyspell

        When do you think that an msi and/or final build might be ready?

        Just to say I've also checked this on my work PC with a Group Policy Redirection policy in place and the 11186 build works as we were expecting and the Spark directory is created on my network shared where my %APPDATA% is stored. My previous comments still stand true regarding .jmf and .jmyspell folders as well though.

        Let's hope cstux will notice your comments (or you can also comment on that doc with svn versions) and fix that as well.
