IJ searching for IJ_Prefs.txt

Gabriel Landini
Hi,
A windows machine (Win 7 enterprise) uses a remote destop accessible through
the network. When the machine network is off, IJ (installed in Program Files)
cannot find the IJ_Prefs.txt file and cannot Save or Save As... (maybe other
things are not working).
Is there a way of moving the IJ_Prefs.txt file to the local C: drive.
Where is the link to the remote desktop stored?
IJ knows where that file should be located because it complains of not being
accessible when I Quit IJ. Where is that information stored?

Thanks

Gabriel

Hi Gabriel On a windows box, the IJ_Prefs.txt file is stored in
C:/Users/username/.imagej/IJ_Prefs.txt

Best regards,

Thanks John,
It wasn't in my machine :-(
I decided to reinstall IJ without a network connection and now it has created
the file where it should, so it seems to work fine.
The file did not exist in the remote desktop either. I have no explanation of
how this has happened.
I found it strange that it would be looking for a given location in the
network drive holding the remote desktop (and assumed that this information is
stored somewhere).

Cheers

Gabriel

Hi Gabriel and John,

I'd assume this depends on what `System.getProperty("user.home")` returns.

See also the source code here:
