    Default ZD Install in AppData/Local, Loses Setup on Log Out

    I'm on Win 7 in an enterprise net w/roaming profiles. I installed ZD to do zimlet stuff and found that, since ZD init puts files in /User/<name>/AppData/Local, ZD forgets account setups across sessions because our GPO clears AppData/Local when the user logs off.

    It appears as though I could mod one or all of the following to fix this

    a) DataRoot and OverridePath reg keys
    b) override.ini beneath AppData,
    c) override.ini below Programs
    d) zdrun.vbs

    It looks like kluding up the vbs variable sLocalAppDir might be the minimalist fix but I'm not a vbs guru. This issue looks like it's related to bug https://bugzilla.zimbra.com/show_bug.cgi?id=52003 but not exactly.

    Is there a clean way to do this? TIA.

    Default

    Modifying zdrun.vbs is your best bet. I'm assuming you are running ZD 7.1.2, so you can change the &H1c& to another folder constant. For example &H1a& is the 'Application Data ' folder.

    sLocalAppDir = oFso.getFolder(oShellApp.Namespace(&H1a&).Self.Pat h).ShortPath

    You might also be able to use &H28& (user profile). The full list of folder constants is described here: Microsoft Windows 2000 Scripting Guide - Enumerating Special Folders

    Once you have made the change, you will also want to remove the DataRoot and OverridePath reg keys so ZD uses the new path.

    Default Giving this a try as well

    I am having a similar issue with a Windows 7 64Bit client and 7.1.2 of the desktop. Every couple of days, I have had to either rebuild the user settings because they "disappeared" or even reinstall the app (only 1 time though).

    I will report back.
