[Fixed] TeamViewer 8.0.17292 leaves a folder in %APPDATA%

Within the file TeamViewer.ini (contained in the folder Data\settings) I can set it to "nosave=0" for saving settings. However this means, that TeamViewer now creates a folder named "TeamViewer" within %APPDATA%.
How I have reported in the thread Saving the settings in TeamViewer Portable impossible, it's therefore necessary, that the following code will pasted in the file TeamViewerPortable.ini:

[DirectoriesMove]
settings\TeamViewer=%APPDATA%\TeamViewer

the problem persists

In version 10 in %APPDATA% program lost a folder called Teamviever contains a empty files named TeamViewer10_Logfile in nosave=1; if nosave=0 the log file is compiled

Very simply workaround.
Cut the %APPDATA%\Teamviewer folder and past it in %PAL:DataDir%\Settings
Edit the %PAL:AppDir%\AppInfo\Launcher\TeamViewerPortable.ini
Insert:
[DirectoriesMove]
settings\Teamviewer=%APPDATA%\Teamviewer

to be repeated at each program update

Fixed

This has been fixed by the publisher within TeamViewer itself, no longer requiring modification. If you do set it to save, there are some notes to be aware of: https://portableapps.com/apps/utilities/teamviewer_portable#app-notes

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
