Need to avoid installing settings file directly into user profile folder

description

There's a build warning about this. Right now, the app only works if it was run as the user who installed it.
 
I think the correct fix here is to install the settings file into the Program Files folder and then, when the app is run by a user who hasn't run it before, this settings file can be duplicated into the new user's profile. Either that or store settings in the registry.

You can have both User level and System level settings, might be worth looking at classifying/segrating them.

You mean in the registry? I am normally against the registry on a point of principle. :) What I was wondering, though, was whether the default WallpaperFlickrSettings.xml could just be stored in the program files directory and then copied into the user settings every time it was found not to be present...
