Setting custom Path loads default settings

Issue #

When I open EWP with a custom settings file that has default path (default save path or default backup path) configured (other than %HomeDrive% - that works) it loads the default settings. I have tried C:\Folder, %HomeDrive%\Folder, H:\Folder, \\serv\folder - all cause it to revert to default settings I turned on logging, but it doesn't log as it's not picking up the config where that is set. Happy to test/try anything that needs testing.

Resolution Summary

On further investigation the ere does not seem to be an issue.


Using a custom config file: for example

C:\EWP\ExamWritePad.exe /CONFIG:"C:\Users\asheldon.admin\Desktop\ExamWritePadSettings.json"


And setting the default save , open, and backup paths to "c:\TEMP" and work as expected.
