      In VTrain 5.2 and newer versions, each user has their own document folders and customized settings. The only prerequisite is that each user has their own user account (i.e. a separate login) in Windows. To create a user account in Windows, choose Start menu | Settings | Control panel | User accounts.

If several users use the same Windows login on a given computer, they can still launch VTrain with their personal configuration by way of a script. For step-by-step instructions, see the "Share your cards" section in the Help file shipping with VTrain 5.5 and later versions. Download VTrain...

Where does VTrain store my documents?    
Besides, the Open and Save dialog boxes will focus the following folder ("Working Directory") by default:
C:\Documents and Settings\<User name>\My Documents\VTrain

Usually, Decks and Projects are stored in that folder. For this reason, it is advisable to make regular backup copies of the Working Directory.

Of course, you can choose a different Working Directory, from the
Tools menu of VTrain. In multiuser environments, it is often a good idea to create a subfolder for each one of them. For more information, see Sharing documents.
Where does VTrain store my user configuration?    
Whenever a user launches VTrain, the program loads the settings specific to that user from the file train.ini, which is usually located in the following folder:
  -   Windows 7:
C:\Users\<User name>\AppData\Roaming\VTrain
- - - -
  -   Windows Vista:
C:\Documents and Settings\<User name>\AppData\Roaming\VTrain
- - - -
  -   Windows XP:
C:\Documents and Settings\<User name>\Application Data\VTrain
To find out the location of this folder, you can also open the Windows Command Line (MS DOS session) and type "
set appdata". Please note also that in Windows Vista / 7, the "AppData\Roaming" folder is usually hidden. To make it visible, you can do the following:
  1.   Log on to Windows as Administrator.
