Like Mozilla and Firefox do, K-Meleon should save its profiles in Windows' Application Data directory so that it supports true multi-user setup.

The appdata dir is located in, for Win9x:
C:\WINDOWS\Profiles\USERNAME\Application Data
and for WinNT:
C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Application Data

Info from the Forums :
it appears that SHGetFolderPath can be used to request, and create if it doesn't exist, the CSIDL_APPDATA folder (c:\documents and settings\<user>\ Application Data\ on Nt, 2000, & XP, likely c:\windows\Application Data\ on 9x and ME). See

This is related to the "allow regular users to run admin-installed K-Meleon" bugs ( bug 370, bug 384, and bug 739) and may even be a dupe, since the solution for those bugs would probably involve fixing this one as well.

In addition to that, users should still have the possibility to override the default profile location. Doing this with an .ini file instead of a command line switch, would have two major benefits:

1) To override the default location, users would have to change a single .ini file entry instead of several registry keys and file system shortcuts.
2) It would finally work together with the loader.

Marking Open as dorian is "planning to" do this.
