It's just that I want on this other topic
[http://news.povray.org/povray.windows/thread/%3Cweb.4a46197a8d79775ff32b4fbf0%40news.povray.org%3E/]
and I'm waiting for a answer to my suggestion in my last post.

I think that we need to "pray" in order to get some changes about this point.

Bye

I think POV-Ray expects to find at least the ini files and
the insert menu at this location. The scenes you can copy
anywhere you want, also the include files if you add the
new location to the standard include path (povray.ini).

Arguably there could be a distinction between source code
which is actually a document and configuration data such as
ini files. The logical location for the latter would then
be under "Application Data" instead of "My Documents".
