I have a weird one. I am using an ini file to hold the details of an aplication settings. For some reason the application does not use the ini file in the its path, but creates and uses one in the windows folder. Can I avoid this.
Code----------------------------------------------------------
procedure TPortSetupMain.ProcessSettings;
begin
portINI := TINIFile.Create(ExtractFilePath('datacollex1.exe') + 'callcollex.ini');
    portINI.WriteInteger('ComPortSet', 'Speed', LongInt(BaudValues[Bauds.ItemIndex]) * 10);
    portINI.WriteInteger('ComPortSet', 'Parity', Paritys.ItemIndex);
    portINI.WriteString('ComPortSet', 'Databits', IntToStr(8-Databits.ItemIndex));
    portINI.WriteString('ComPortSet', 'Stopbits', IntToStr(Succ(Stopbits.ItemIndex)));
portINI.Free;
------------------------------------------------------------
This maybe something to do with Windows XP!

Thanks,
        I already had that info, but I thought it meant that I should replace it with a file name.
