Re: Inheriting Everything Settings across Multiple Windows Profiles

You can try installing in the "program data" tree instead of program files. Or you can make a directory on C root, beware that W7 & later makes this hard. It creates a phantom dir in the current profile, redirecting as needed by default. There is a way to turn this off, but I don't remember off hand...

I have and use this tool.
However, I was hoping there was a simple way for the function to be included without the extra step of opening that tool.
Switching tools can break work flow, so I try to avoid it.

Not for all of them, just the ones shown in the gui, or as a tag in IPC searches?
