Bug in Sumatra 0.8

It creates a folder called ${DEFAULTSETTINGSDIR} in my Data folder.
And shouldn't the sumatrapdfprefs.dat go in my Data folder?

EDIT

Yes. It looks like John removed the DEFAULTSETTINGSDIR Variable from the Launcher code but left it in line 142: StrCpy "$SETTINGSDIRECTORY" "$EXEDIR\Data\${DEFAULTSETTINGSDIR}".
Thats why it creates that folder.

It makes the string literal. I could release an update, but meh. Blum

Still getting empty dir in APPSDATA with 0.8 Rev

Hi all,

I downloaded the 0.8 Rev 2 update, used the launcher to execute, and I still get the empty "SumatraPDF" directory in APPDATA.

Another observation - If I bypass the PA launcher and just run SumatraPDF.exe on the C: drive it will write its .DAT file to APPDATA, but if I run SumatraPDF.exe from a USB key it writes the .DAT file to the USB directory where the EXE is located. Is the behavior hard coded into the SumatraPDF executable?
