Where Is Monad's profile.msh?

Apparently, I’m the only person out there who doesn’t know this, but I found myself wondering where the much-quoted user config file profile.msh could be found in my installation of the Monad beta. The only information I was able to find after quite a while was that it should have been in {systemdrive}\Documents and Settings\{username}, but it wasn’t there. I’m sure this is really documented in some place I couldn’t find, but I eventually used Filemon to find the location where msh.exe is looking: {my documents}\mshprofile.msh. Ha! I also found that another location is also looked at (first, actually), namely {all users documents}\mshprofile.msh. So now I’ve published this here, I won’t have to find it out again next time, and maybe someone else can benefit from it as well. 😃

Sorry, this blog does not support comments.

I used various blog hosting services since this blog was established in 2005, but unfortunately they turned out to be unreliable in the long term and comment threads were lost in unavoidable transitions. At this time I don't want to enable third-party services for comments since it has become obvious in recent years that these providers invariably monetize information about their visitors and users.
