Well iirc in 32-bit windows, INI files are supported for backward compatibility, but programmers are discouraged from using them (for whatever reason.. :eyes: ) and 32-bit apps should store config setting in the registry instead. Maybe this is a reason, although imho using a private INI is just as good as using the registry to store info..

actually using the registry to store info has advantages, one being because the info is centralised and global, it is easier for applications to access it. The info is also hierarchical when using the registry, INI files have a maximum file size.. and yadi yada.. hehe :p
