[quote=kko] Uff, that's a bit complicated. Actually it's not complicated, it's just a bit difficult to explain (especially due to the confusing names profil[b]e[/b].ini and profil[b]es[/b].ini). I have not yet found a simple and clear explanation, that's why I have not yet updated the [url=http://kmeleon.sourceforge.net/wiki/ProfileLocation]ProfileLocation[/url] documentation. Well, I guess all you need to know is that K-Meleon 1.5 has a new profile component (similar to the one of Firefox - or it even is the one of Firefox). In K-Meleon 1.5 the file profil[b]es[/b].ini is the profile pointer. In previous versions the file registry.dat is the profile pointer. The purpose of the profile pointer is to tell the browser what profiles exist and where they are located. In order to move or rename profile directories, just edit profil[b]es[/b].ini (registry.dat is synchronized automatically). [Just to make confusion perfect: The profil[b]e[/b].ini file that can be placed in the K-Meleon installation directory, is just a pointer to the profile pointer - it tells K-Meleon where to look for the actual profile pointer (profil[b]es[/b].ini or registry.dat).] One of the advantages of the new system is portability. In order to get a portable installation of K-Meleon 1.5, you just need to uncheck the option "Multi-user profiles" when installing (or manually place a profil[b]e[/b].ini in the installation directory). You can then just copy the installation directory to a USB stick - the installation will work whatever drive letter the stick may get.[/quote]
