I'm working on a cross-platform standalone, and having problems getting my pattrstorage preference files to save under Windows. the .json files are inside the application itself, in the support folder -- as I'm loading them manually, I know that the path to the folder I'm using(app_foldersupportdata) is being read by the patch, but I get a -1 error when a writeagain message is sent. Checking the properties of that folder, I noticed that it is marked read-only. After nosing around the internets for Windows, I changed variousl settings, only to find that once I closed the folder and reopened it, the read-only flag turned itself on again. Is there a workaround for this, or do I have to stick my settings files somewhere else?
I note that Windows has the "documents and Settings" folder -- is that the place I have to write the .json files to? Or is there some trick to get my permissions change to stick?
