Settings are stored to user directory. This directory is created by default on
Windows under Documents and Settings/.netbeans/version folder. 
So I am not sure what is the problem here.
Comment 2 Tim Lebedkov 2006-09-26 00:56:59 UTC
It is in fact not so important and could be P4.

But standard Windows convention is to store program settings under
c:\documents and settings\application data\Company\Product
(for things that could be moved to another computer)
c:\documents and settings\local settings\application data\Company\Product
(for settings that cannot be moved to another computer)
