I'm looking at this help page (and am running XP):

http://texturizer.net/phoenix/edit.html#profile

"On Windows 2000/XP, the path is usually %AppData%\Phoenix\Profiles\default\xxxxxxxx.slt\."

Sorry if this is a stupid question, but am I looking for a folder called '%AppData%'? I can't find anything like that on my C: drive.

Or perhaps I have to physically create the folder and .slt myself? In which case the question still remains: where should I put it?

Note: I have managed to fire up profile manager, and (supposedly) a profile has been created for me - but where?

Sorry, bit thick and confused today (more so than usual).

c:\Documents and Settings\(your user name)\application data\phoenix

You have to first enable hidden folders in your Folders/tools/folder options

under view select "Hidden Folders" Show Hidden Folders...

Hope that helps

Maybe I should clarify that you need to enter this path in the address field of an explorer window or select Start->Run.

Just enter %AppData% and press enter.

I just find it more comforting to go there manually in exporer and then put the things I edit in my texturizer favorites...

I have a favorite in Texturizer pointing to my profile folder, that's pretty neat. :)

Texturizer is your baby isn't it? It's sooo much better than the MS alternatives...

Thanks. Yes, it's my baby. Or was. It's been a while since the last time I worked on the project. Right now I'm fighting with M$ because they provide me with buggy activex objects. :(

Oh, I didn't realize that you were involved with texturizer. I guess I should have made the connection. I used it for quite a long time. I switched to Object Edit when I subscribed to ODNT.
