MuseScore default saving location is still confusing under Windows Vista

• Jul 28, 2009 - 09:10

I am a new user, just some hours old... I have just installed MuseScore 0.9.5 RC on Windows Vista (the OS is in Spanish). When I saved a file I had exactly the same problem described here:

"... the default location is C:\Program Files\MuseScore 0.9\

As this is not allowed under Vista's new security policies, the files are actually stored in
C:\Users\Your Name\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\MuseScore 0.9

This causes real confusion for normal users."

I would thank you very much if this could be solved.


I know it may be an annoying question, but I cannot find the way to change the default saving location.

I have already created a C:\musscore folder to prevent language version confusions (yes, it is weird, my computing skills are average) and changed the "working directory" to it on "edit - preferences - general". This had effect in the "open" feature but not in the "save". Am I too stupid (many people think so, especially other teachers, my pupils and their parents) or is this a bug?

God bless you.
