TOPIC: Central Multiple Users Location in Win XP

Central Multiple Users Location in Win XP 10 Months ago  
Using Win XP, single computer & set up with 3 User Accounts for security, but there's only one real user, me. How do I make Rainlendar2 show the same Events & To Do info for each user?

I have tried instructions given in FAQ -- Where is All the Data Stored? -- & that creates a new Rainlendar2 for each user in an alternate location with rainlendar2.ini & default.ics files located there. However, when I log off & use another of my user accounts, then log out & come back to the account created with the alternative file location, Rainlendar2 has automatically created the original default file location (which in Win XP is C:\Documents and Settings\[yourname]\.rainlendar2).

How do I get around the automatic reverting back to the default location for settings & events/etc. files? I searched this forum before posting, but found nothing that answered this issue.

Welcome to the forum, fca01.
As you see, by default, all data will be stored into [your name] folder, if you want to change it, you can:

a) specified the location:
there is a option "-c" (or "--config"), which defines the path where the configuration file will be stored. you can create a shortcut, context is like "rainlendar2.exe -c [new location]", and always launch it when you start Rainlendar.

b) make it as portable:
the similar way can see here:
"Can I install Rainlendar2 on a USB memory stick (portable installation)?"

Or if you just want to share the same events and tasks you can move the events file (Default.ics) to a location where everyone can access. This can be done in the Options->Calendars.
