Notes on additional install options

The option Place configuration in install directory will place the user files (configuration, macros, tool libraries...) in the installation directory. This will make all the users in the computer to run CIMCO Edit with the same settings.

If this option is not checked, the user files (configuration, macros, tool libraries...) will be placed in the application specific data folder for the user profile (C:\Users\"username"\AppData\Roaming), so every user in the computer will run CIMCO Edit with its own user files.

More information related to this option can be found in Global Setup -> Plugins.
