Compare it! stores all its settings in a single configuration file. This means that it does not make any changes to your system. The configuration file is called wincmp3.ini and is stored in the same folder as the application executable, wincmp3.exe.
To work with Compare It! in a multiuser environment, you must pass the user name in the command line as follows: /i=UserName.
Compare It! will create and use a new configuration file called UserName.ini. To verify the current configuration file name, hold down the CTRL key and open the Options dialog box.
Note for users of older versions
Versions prior to version 2.0 used a configuration file located in the Windows folder. You can move this file to your Compare It! folder, so that you can easily take Compare It! with you with all your settings.
Using registry to store settings
While keeping settings in configuration file is a good choice for personal usage, corporate environment may require to keep all settings in registry,
to allow true multiuser cooperation. Another problem with configuration file can be write access limitations in office systems.
To switch on registry usage, place wincmp3.reg file with any content to the same folder where Compare It! is installed.
