    i do have code to determine if in profile mode, but its for INNO setup

    not hard to do... check regkey...
    then %userdocs%\RideRunner is the base path

    in raw terms:

    %USERPROFILE%\My Documents\RideRunner

    each installer has some keyword to get there
    -Thanks

    Good point



    However this work great unless whoever installed RR decided to install to a directory other than RideRunner. (I know it's unlikely, but it's possible)

    Hence it would be nice if there was a definitive path in the reg.

    Background Directory

    I'm not sure if my change to profile mode caused this, but when using the RRConfig Utility to change the skin background the dropdown stops at the directory level not allowing a selection of the actual background file. My recollection is that before profile mode, the RRConfig Utility allowed you to select the actual image file. Using current RideRunner version 05/01/11 and RRConfig v1.0.2.22

    RRConfig only allows you to set the Background folder path.

    You set the background in the skin itself (al least where a skin has designed it so)

    Which is correct, there are few if any skins made recently that don't allow background changes from within the skin
    RideRunner...The #1 FE, PERIOD.

    Thanks Enforcer, Blue;

    rr.ini to have "background=**path to background images**" (as set by rrconfig).
    skins.ini to have "background=**image name**" (in local skin directory).

    I agree with E. This is becomming an issue for me too. I converted my phone app to profile mode and most of the issues being raised are due to the ini file not being in the correct place due to profile mode and the installer not knowing.

    So first how do i know RR's in profile mode and second how do I know where to install stuff without a definitive directory location?

    very easy....

    check for rr.ini in userdoc\RideRunner\Config
    else
    you get from the registry where rr is installed
    then check for rr.ini at that location

    now you know

    sample inno code:
    for getting the CORE DATA PATH... since your a plugin... you want more
    prob many other simple ways to do it...

    attached is one of my plugins installer
    INNO Setup...

    Code:
    //////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
    // Get DATA Path, based on Profile Mode
    //////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
    function DataPath(p: String): String;
    begin
    	// look for rr.ini?
    	if FileExists(ExpandConstant('{userdocs}\RideRunner\Config\rr.ini')) then
    	begin
    		if DirExists(ExpandConstant('{userdocs}\RideRunner')) then
    			Result := ExpandConstant('{userdocs}\RideRunner')
    		else
    			Result := ExpandConstant('{reg:HKLM\Software\RideRunner,Path|{pf}\RideRunner}')
    	end
    	else
    		Result := ExpandConstant('{reg:HKLM\Software\RideRunner,Path|{pf}\RideRunner}')
    end;
    anyway, its not hard...

    Still would like to see registry entries created either by RR's installer or by RR itself when running for

    RR's path & RR's data path.

    It would take any guesswork out when a user has a strange install path. (Not looking at pierrotm777 at all)
