Most users don’t know or use this directory: Blender 2.62\2.62\config
The config folder when created by the user, will save the startup.bend to this location & defaults for the build remain within the build it’s self. That is, wherever you have unzipped Blender will be the default folder path.
This allows, on Windows especially, multiple builds with multiple startups & not using the default installed location at all.
Users\Dad\AppData\Roaming\Blender Foundation\Blender\2.62 remains the default install location.
My proposal is, that the ‘config’ folder be created in svn builds by default.
This can be removed for official releases, then reactivated for svn builds.
I do beleive it should be in the official windows zip by default too.
For users of graphicall & builders, the config folder can be very handy.
i don’t want experimental builds/branches overwriting appdata files, messing with themes, calling wrong addons & other issues windows users must put up with using the appdata.
Try running blender from a flash stick & save your work, only to find it left on the host computor in app data.
For me, this is a practical solution for multiple blender versions.
