Ya i have some stuff on my OS that work like that. (Win98se)
I think thats a BETTER WAY to do it,why bog down a main settings file (registry) when the program can have its own INI,etc files and not need the reg @ all??
I mean all the stuff needed for your OS like monitor settings,etc could be contained in individual files that loaded @ boot. (Same way the reg does)
Im not sure though which way is better but i do know I MUCH PREFER STANDALONE APPS! (Apps with nothing in the reg)
