In VB.NET, where is the best place to save application scope data?  I am looking to save one or more data files to be used to persist application-level settings and configurations between different users.

This doesn't seem to work as each user as Windows seems to call up their own virtual copy of the file.

My.Settings only works for user-scope settings.  The application-scope settings get reset when the application is reloaded ... i.e. the data doesn't persist.
