I can't get Visual Foxpro to retain my default directory between sessions on my laptop. So for example: I load VFP and type
 set default to c:\
into the command line. I then select Options from the Tools menu and click the set as default button then OK. I then quit VFP and reload it. The default directory resets to whatever is the start directory of the icon used to load VFP. This is different to how it works on my desktop machine which retains the set default setting between sessions. Any ideas please? I am using VFP9 SP2 on both machines.
