I must admit to not having thought about it much after your previuos
email, postponing it for freer and more enegertic time. Thank you very
much for your suggestions, though. Once I start making use of the new
computer and installation, I'll have to face the issue.

Subject: Re: [WinEdt] New installation
I have written something that probably is not reasonable.
If you simply delete your user profile, you get WinEdt
starting with %b=%B. I would like to know if there is any
advantage for one user to have his User Profile with the Application
Data Folder equal to %B and if it is really correct to change Get
Application Data Folder.edt file.
If you are not sure what is your %b, run e.g. the macro
Prompt("%%b=%b"); from the menu Macros/Define And Run Macro...
