Why leak report file placed on desktop?

Post by bitman »

This is very annoying! But not just annoying: if your OS on an SSD, the desktop takes place on the SDD, as well. And the SDD cells can be write in a numbered times. After that comes the errors. Place it beside the exe.

SSDs can handle gigantic amount of data being written to them, and the leak report file is very small. Writing to SSDs is usually only a problem if you repeatedly write very large files to them.

Placing the leak report beside the EXE has the problem that often EXEs are stored in "C:\Program Files" and usually the EXE files stored there do not have write access to their own folder!

But anyway, you can choose the file path of the leak report yourself:

You use madExcept leak report exclusively just in development phase. And a dev environment never in the "program files". You can set the path for bug report in the settings but not for the leak report. I cant get it why! SetLeakReportFile works fine! My opinoin is unchanged: it should take place in the settings dialog.
