Summary0001108: Portable version crashes
DescriptionI am using Geosetter in "portable mode" (creating an empty config.ini in the Geosetter program directory). This always worked for me, even using the Geosetter Shell Extension. With the latest beta (2013-12-17), Geosetter crashes whenever I start it AND its working directory is NOT the Geosetter directory (crashes also when I am trying to use the Shell extension).

If I delete the config.ini from the Geosetter program directory, everything works fine (Geosetter will create and use the %appdata%\Geosetter.ini).
But if I move all the files from %appdata%\Geosetter to the Geosetter program folder - like I did in all previous version (including betas) - Geosetter always crashes.

A simple example (from the command prompt, with a "portable" config,ini)
  C:\> c:\tools\geosetter.exe -> Crash (fault exception in geosetter.exe)
  C:\tools\geosetter> c:\tools\geosetter.exe -> No crash

(As said above, Geosetter shell extension is always crashing, no matter which directory I choose. But if I choose the Geosetter directory itself and click the shell extension, usually the whole Explorer instance crashes).

All previous versions (incl. betas) did not have this issue and worked fine (I'm not sure if I used beta 3.4.46)

Correction line 4: ...(Geosetter will create and use the %appdata%\Geosetter\CONFIG.INI).

The latest beta version I am able to test (and that I still have) is beta 3.4.35 (build 2146). I can confirm I can start that version successfully without errors from ANY folder (having a "portable" config.ini in its program folder).
