In case you want to store the settings in its application folder instead, simply create a folder in the Flash Renamer program folder (typically c:\Program Files\Flash Renamer) and name it Settings. You can run the utility ImportSettings.exe to copy your settings from the normal settings folder to this newly created folder! But you must have full write privileges for this to work...
