The installer will put your settings to "My documents" by default. In case you run multiple instances of AirDC++, note that only one instance can use that settings directory. If you want to keep your settings in the same directory than the client, untick the box "Store settings in your user profile folder" in the installer. The binary version will store the settings in the exe folder, unless you manually modify the file dcppboot.xml.
