Settings are stored to user directory. This directory is created by default on
Windows under Documents and Settings/.netbeans/version folder.
So I am not sure what is the problem here.
It is in fact not so important and could be P4.
But standard Windows convention is to store program settings under
c:\documents and settings\application data\Company\Product
(for things that could be moved to another computer)
c:\documents and settings\local settings\application data\Company\Product
(for settings that cannot be moved to another computer)
Sounds like duplicate of one of my bugs.
