    What is the best folder to install a FM12 runtime to in Windows 7, 8?

      I realize this is also a topic for Microsoft dev forums, but I kind of imagine that Filemaker runtimes are sooo different and special from any other DB installation...

       

      My question:

      I have a runtime for freelancers that keeps sensitive data such as patient data etc. However, an install in windows to the recommended /appdata/roaming or localappdata regularly results in missing write access to the db files I bind with my solution. I have read in windows forums that if you really want write access, "just install to my documents".This way, the user also has its data saved when making backups with standard backup tools.

       

       

      Am i wrong? Is this a security problem? What do you think??
