Subject Re: [firebird-support] Best location to store FDB file?

Hi,

according to MS recommendations - never use c:\program files\whatever to
store application data! Your program will need to have at least Power
user rights to write to this folder and it's nothing more boring than
say everytime you want/have to use this program that program is allowed
to elevate its rights (on Vista/Seven) or it will simply not work under
XP with not admin user.
