[Fixed] VLC does not create Data\settings

I'm surprised no one's reported this, or at least not that I saw. Just wanted to point out for a couple of releases now, VLC Portable does not create 'Data' (installer does anyways), but furthermore, Data\'settings', so you get an error saying it doesn't exist.

It's easy for most users to figure out they need to create it, but obviously the launcher should.

Is this just me, or did everyone on a clean install actually miss this?

Mine does

I just tried and the installer created one and it got recreated by the Launcher after I deleted it. You ARE using the latest version, are you?

Ditto

No errors to report here,

Data is created on installation, settings on launch,
"all is as it was before"

Things have got to get better, they can't get worse, or can they?

I Am

I am using the latest version. I checked that a few times to make sure. I'll re-download this time, and check again.

Edit: Weird... I just downloaded the same file, same MD5, but it works now. Odd. Blum I dunno what I did.

Thanks for checking guys.
