userprofile?

Did you think about trying userprofile?

Env Var

Redirect USERPROFILE environment variable, if you can. It will only work if the app has no file open/save dialogs, though.

Does that work with Win7?

Didn't the name of the Application Data directory change in windows 7? Is it possible to redirect APPDATA?

No

It's never been possible to redirect APPDATA. Very few apps look at the environment variable for it. You have to redirect USERPROFILE. But it will mess up file open/save dialogs and any app launched from the current app (like if it launches a local web browser from anywhere).

PAL?

Did you think about using your old custom launcher?

To be honest, I forgot about

To be honest, I forgot about my old custom launcher. There is no reason for it to not work with the new installer.

Well,

your old launcher works flawlessly. If I set HOME (without a launcher) it works without an issue, so the problem is PAL or the configuration. :evil:

Typo

I see a typo in the launcher.ini that has a double quote at the end of the HOME= line. This could be causing it.

Remember that double quoting keys or values in an INI is not required unless the value contains leading or trailing spaces.

That's it

removing the trailing " in the HOME line of the launcher ini has resolved the problem in my original 2.2.4 release.
Thanks everyone for all your efforts in finding this.
