Default HS# Path

Is there a way to change the default VWS start path. My instance of HS3 is C:\Program Files\HS3 not C:\Program Files (86)\HS3. I have the current file paths set, but they don't persist since the VWS plug-in has a path different than my install.

I have the same problem

the VWS.ini file is fine. But the plug-in is NOT reading it. It is looking for one in another directory (C:\Program Files (86)\HS3). But it updates the one in C:\Program Files\Homeseer HS3. Took me awhile to figure out what was going on---everytime the plug-in restarts, it could not find the csv and dbase files --- I update them and it works (and saves the updates in C:\Program Files\Homeseer HS3). I solved the problem by copying the ini file to the other directory, but that isn't the way it should be!
