Yes, All Users is the default, and in retrospect given that I'm the only
user on this laptop, I'd have been just as well picking it.. Never mind, I
know for future, and will be getting a new laptop in the very near future..
This one will be getting linux put on it.
So this is a known behavioural difference between Just Me and All Users ?

I have to admit that odds are I wouldn't understand the APIs.. I'm still
early in the process of learning C++, and for that matter programming in
general, and as such it's not something that I have a huge amount of time to
work on unfortunately :-(
However.. Sweet.. ;-)

Cheers for the help all :-)
