[REBOL] Installation puzzle

From: Steven::White::ci::bloomington::mn::us at: 22-Dec-2003 14:42

Some time ago I installed REBOL/View on my office Windows 98 computer. It got installed in C:\"Program Files"\REBOL\VIEW, probably because I took some default file path somewhere in the installation process--I can't remember any more. In any case, it works fine. Now I am trying to set up a procedure to make it as easy as possible for someone else to install REBOL/View on his computer, and I am testing this operation on my own computer. I create a directory called C:\REBOL and unpack REBOL/View into it, and then run it to create the PREFS.R and USER.R files. When I do that, the files USER.R and PREFS.R get created in... C:\Program Files\REBOL\VIEW. Where is REBOL looking to decide to put those files in the REBOL\VIEW directory in Program Files? How does it even know of the existence of such a place if I have unpacked it into C:\REBOL? Is the directory in Program Files hard-coded into the Windows version of REBOL? Have I missed some configuration file or environment variable somewhere? Thank you for any ideas, and Merry Christmas by the way.
