Hello Andy,

A friend told me about a problem when installing CAMBAM on XP.

I did an insta on my laptop with the last "L" to reproduce the pb.

When quitting CB or when saving the settings, a error message appears in the diagnostic windows (level 4)

"Error wrinting prompt history: could not find a part of the path 'C:\documents and settings\David\application data\cambam\cambampro.prompt"

(in the filepath, 'David' is the name of my session on windows.)

After some investigations, I discovered that the folder "cambam" which must contain the "cambampro.prompt" file is not created by the installer, and of course cambam can't write the "cambampro.prompt" file when quitting.

I manually create this folder and everything falls into place.

This solves a strange pb on my workshop PC, that always show empty value for things like "joint tolerance", and I've this pb from a long time ago, I assume the pb is not very new, I tried with the "i" version, and the cambam folder is not created too.
