To try and fix a problem, somebody said "Edit XenCenterMain.exe.config" (doesn't matter why) but didn't say where the file was so I searched my hard drive and found it in two locations:

"C:\Users\rob.nicholson\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\Citrix\XenCenter\XenCenterMain.exe.config"

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Citrix\XenCenter\XenCenterMain.exe.config"

What's this VirtualStore all about in Windows 7? One of them appears to be a junction - right term? When I edit one of them, the other also updates.

Cheers, Rob.

This part of UAC Virtualisation. This is to prevent non authorised users from writing to Program File and other sensitive location. You should be ok to just update the one in you app data folder.
