GUISelect 1.1.0 released.

Changes in 1.1.0:

* Settings and logs are no longer written to the application's folder, but rather the user's Application Data folder. This should hopefully fix the issue Win7 and Vista user have been having.

No crash here, tried from source and binary.

I remember some bug with some other program a while back with wrong location, I mean localisation settings with date etc.

Try the latest version (1.1.1). All localization has been removed in this.

Changes in 1.2.0:
* The Save button no longer closes the program, but instead disables itself when clicked. It's re-enabled when you select another GUI from the list.
* The "Also Set Skin file" option has been disabled.

I haven't really looked at it, but I'm going to assume that the Win7 crash is UAC related;
The application might be getting a file permission denied error,
depending on where the user has the application extracted/ran from.

to remedy such a problem, it is wise to use the application data folder.

Code:
// C#
public static class SafeIO
{
  public static System.String AppData(System.String dataFile)
  {
     return System.String.Format("{0}\\{1}\\{2}\\{3}",
        System.Environment.GetFolderPath(System.Environment.SpecialFolder.ApplicationData), 
        System.Windows.Forms.Application.CompanyName,
        System.Windows.Forms.Application.ProductName,
        dataFile
     );
  }
}

//Example use:

string path = SafeIO.AppData("MyData.dat");

byte[] data = System.IO.File.ReadAllBytes(path);
on a Vista/7 system, the above would return
C:\Users\{user name}\Application Data\{company}\{product}\MyData.dat

in my case,
C:\Users\Xyphos\Application Data\Xyphos Software\TestApp\MyData.dat



...no clue how that would work in WinXP; but I'm sure you could tell me

1.2.0 does in fact store its files in that location.
