Is there anyway of setting the plugin directory to an arbitrary location?

Because I compile my plugin directly to that directory so I can easily debug it, the protected location means running DevStudio as Administrator else the link fails due to security violation.

Thanks,
Deano

Hi,

For now you cannot change it (or add multiple directories). This is a good idea. I will put it in the to-do list and it will be present in the next patches (but I cannot promise you a certain date).

Why is the plugins directory a protected location? (I'm assuming you are using Vista). There are a lot of issues regarding Vista and non - adminstrator users.

Under Vista only administrators can write to Program Files or Program Files(x86) (for vista 64).

Its possible I could reinstall to a non protected directory but I just used the defaults so its protected... for now its simple enough to just run Grome and Dev Studio as administrator.

Thanks,
Deano

Ahh, I see.

Well, yes you can reinstall to a non protected directory. This would also be a good idea since Grome also needs to be able to write to its folder (for undo scratch disk for example).

We will add the plugins directory setup feature in one of the future patches.
