[WriteLog] Convert CTY to Writelog question

I know of no way to change the directory path for Reacty32.exe so it puts 
the cty file in a different directory.  If you did that then you would also 
need to modify WriteLog itself or perhaps each individual contest module so 
they would know the correct location where you had placed the latest cty 

But why do you need to change its location?  And why on your system is 
C:\ProgramData\WriteLog a hidden directory?  It isn't a hidden directory on 
my system.  I just created a shortcut on the Desktop that jumps to 
C:\ProgramData\WriteLog whenever I need to the latest cty update.  I can 
find the file there and click on it to open it in Notepad, then do a Find 
for VERSION and can quickly locate the current version information to make 
sure the file updated correctly.  Not a big deal.

I have WL installed at c:\writelog

When I run the "Convert CTY to Writelog" utility (located at
C:\WriteLog\Programs\Reacty32.exe) it downloads the latest cty file and
creates the new wl_cty.dat file at C:\ProgramData\WriteLog (a hidden

Is there any way to configure the Convert CTY program to put the converted
wl_cty.dat file where I want it to go (C:\WriteLog\Programs)?
