Why does Agent Ransack / FileLocator Lite does not store its settings in the Windows registry in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software? On first run it does indeed create a registry key named HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Mythicsoft\FileLocatorLite\Settings, but this key always remains empty.

Instead the settings are stored in the file config.xml in C:\Program Files\Mythicsoft\FileLocator Lite\config. Which means they are shared between all Windows users. And if I change the folder using FileLocator Lite's menu "Tools -> Configuration -> Folders", then the new config file location is stored in the file master.xml, which in turn is located in the global installation folder C:\Program Files\Mythicsoft\FileLocator Lite. Shared by all users, again.

How can I configure FileLocator Lite on a per-user basis, then?

I am using FileLocator Lite 64 bit, Release Build 762 - 2010.03.29.47911, on Windows 7 Home Premium SP1.

Update: As of Agent Ransack 2014 user configuration information is now stored in the user's AppData folder.

---- Previous answer ----

You're correct that Agent Ransack (FLLite) only has a single user configuration file shared by all users. This will be changed in the next version of the product (due out later this year) to be like FileLocator Pro and store the config information in the users private AppData folder so that it works properly in multi-user environments.
