[Fixed] Eraser saves to %windir%

Eraser app - Edit - Preferences - Erasing - Answer "no" to upgrading the format, if asked.

Side note: answering "yes" seems to corrupt the settings but that is out of the scope of this post. I don't think that is a portable bug.

If you create a new erasing method, Eraser creates the file %windir%\Eraser.INI. Can Eraser portable be updated to redirect this file? Thanks!

(FYI, an all zeroes one pass erasing method is useful for compacting virtual hard disks.)

Bug

Please add a [Bug] to the title of this thread so it shows up in the bug tracker and it is more likely to get fixed.
Thanks.

Confirmation of the existence of the file Eraser.INI

I could also notice that after deletion a file with Eraser Portable in %WINDIR% a file called Eraser.INI is appeared with the following content:

Download impossible

It's impossible to download the installer file via the PortableApps.com Updater. It appears the following error message:

The download copy of Eraser Portable is not valid and can not be installed. This could be due to an incomplete download or other network issue. Please try running the updater again when complete.
