    When I execute and terminate Version 6.6.0.236, it leaves behind a file: HRD Software7.0.lw.xml in the c:/Users/username/Documents/ directory. I am running Windows 10 Pro and installed the latest version using the defaults. No biggie but not sure why the file is in MY user area and is created each time I run HRD so the file isn't needed except during HRD execution. I would think the ProgramData directory would be a better choice for such files. Ken K5RG

    Would of made more sense if it was in:-

    c:/Users/username/Documents/HRDLLC

    instead of

    c:/Users/username/Documents/

      Agree that c:/Users/username/Documents/HRDLLC makes more sense especially since the HRDLLC folder is completely empty. Clarification to my posting, I installed HRD using the suggested file location defaults. Ken K5RG

        If the HRDLLC folder is empty then that is not right. The folder stores your settings, logbook databases, macros etc. etc. Even with a fresh install there should be some folders inside.
