    Agree with everything else but there are a load of Sherston apps that use the savepath for saving a shared database or data file that is not specific to a single user. In instances like that it shouldn't be a My Docs folder.

    Otherwise, makes perfect sense and yes definitely agree that generic MSI's would be much appreciated.. perhaps with MST example files for common scenarios.
    I agree with you that if the application is database orientated, then My Documents is irrelevant. The bulk of the application should live locally on the workstation with just the database on the server.

    I can confirm Sherston have been in contact with me and appreciate the feedback given by everyone. Standard MSIs will shortly be created for E-mail Detectives, The Wizard's Apprentice, Crystal Rainforest, Gomez Returns and Mission Control V2. I have agreed to test the MSIs once they've been created.

    Thumbs up Sherston Update

    After further discussions with Sherston they have sent me 5 x MSIs to test. My initial testing was primarily successful and Sherston have done a fantastic job creating these MSIs.

    Once the MSIs have gone final, I will let you guys know and I am sure Sherston will gladly assist you

    I remember the crystal rainforest from way back in '99. Scary to think I was in year 6 back then!
