Store cache location as relative path option.

At the moment, the cache path is stored as an absolute path... but if the usb stick that PMPC is on appears as a different drive letter, then it breaks the cache path setting that's remembered.

I want to have a disk, stick, folder with PatchMyPC.exe and all the previously downloaded software, all in one flat folder... The 'current folder'.

If the cache setting could optionally be relative, then i could tell it to be the current folder and others might choose to put it in a different folder name, in a different relative location of their choosing. So it gives us ultimate flexibility.

The PatchMyPCITProCache option/folder has a specific role, so that can't be used.


Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeease may we have this?

I just want to have a USB stick with PMPC and 100 applications on it, plug it in, start pmpc, select the items i want and have it find the local copies and install them (updating if required)

This can only happen if pmpc looks in the folder it's currently in for the software...  The path, drive letter, network address will change a lot!

Please just make it look in the current folder or one in a path relative to it!

Pretty please?
