Is there any way to control where idea puts the system files? I used to be able to point it to a specific directory that was not tied to a profile. Then when installing a new version I could also indicate the directory to import settings from.
I work at a company that locks down the computers in an extreme way. I have an admin account that is only used for installing programs and doing other admin stuff. My regular account is used for running the programs. The problem I am having is that when I install a new version with the admin account, none of the settings are imported because the program was used with another profile (using Windows XP). Since I can't install and run the program with the same profile, how can I ensure the app picks up the settings (plugins, etc.) I want (which are in another profile). Hope this is not too confusing.
Seems to me if I could control the location of the system directory and decouple it from a user profile, I could get what I need.
Thanks for any help.
