I have an application that is run from a local drive -- but connects to a server drive. During the startup of the application I want to be able to check the server for updated files. What I'm running into is that I don't know where the server file is going to be (and it may change in the future). Right now I'm hard coding it into the application -- which is a terrible thing to do. But I'm not sure how to do this. The application relies on an .ini file and I have the server directory in the file -- but I haven't figured out to install this .ini file. Any suggestions?
Does this make sense? What happens if the .ini file is deleted? Stuff like that.
