c++.idde - What a great IDDE and How to save settings

Congratulations on a really great IDDE - I like it. It is neat compact and
simple.
I like the fact that it doesn't use the registry at all.
The only downside to this is that when I copied the CD to my harddisk I
forgot that all the file properties were set to readonly. So I couldn't save
my settings.

If there is no note to this in a FAQ than it may be best to put in something
like this:
"In order for the IDDE to save its settings, you must remove the readonly
attribute from BROW32.INI, scw.ini, and SCW32.CFG in the BIN directory."

Thanks! That's EXACTLY what I always have been thinking...

That indeed would be a good one for the FAQ/Install. Jan
