For the records, in the version of windows vm bundled, there is
not-yet-annouced-widely useful enhancement to trunk version.
(I think we want to merge them to trunk and document it at squeakvm
site) . That can expand some variables in
SecureDirectory/UserDirectory settings in etoys.ini :
+ %MYDOCUMENTS% will be expanded to actual "My Documents" directory
for current user.
+ Environment variables in SecureDirectory setting can be expanded now.
Bundled etoys.ini would be good starting point to learn the functionality.
The version of VM bundled have a known problem :
%MYDOCUMENT% is expanded with backslash terminated.
(I think Squeak part should handle it appropriately)
I came to know it seems fixed in the latest stuff on svn/installers
when I built plugin installer by myself and test it last night. You
might want to check it out.
