I've really not looked into this stuff since Vista came out, but the main issue is applications are mostly no longer administrator level and so can not assume they can write to the program directory, assuming it's within Program Files. Application developers should never really have been writing to their program directory anyway, but some did, and Microsoft did not want old applications to break. So Vista 'cunningly' wrote the such files to a virtual location in Documents and Settings, or Users, or where ever instead. Real application developers simply wrote their files there in the first place. I seem to recall the same can happen in the registry, with HLM keys, which I used to use (with adjusted permissions). So I decided nice simple text files (not XML) were the answer, and called them .config, but that was probably a red herring, sorry.
