Changes in the user.home directory
There are some requirements for the user.home directory:
- Default Directory for OS-X: ~/Library/Application Support/Spark/...
- Default Directory for Windows: %%ROOTDRIVE%%:\Documents and Settings%%USERNAME%%\Application Data\Spark
- Possibility to specify the root directory at the installation time, for example: \\SM-Data-Server\Redirected\Ted Miller\Spark
These features are required in forums:

C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin\java.exe -jar C:\Downloaded\spark-installer.jar
I can confirm that this version DOES indeed place the Spark application data folder in the correct location. I did notice that the following directories were still being created in %USERPROFILE% though, and these should perhaps move to %APPDATA% as well:
When do you think that an msi and/or final build might be ready?
