    Folders Used
    The release of Microsoft Vista forces programs to store their data files separately from that of the programs. This program used to store all of its program and data files in the C:\Program Files\Lease Calc Pro folder. Now, the folders used are based on the operating system installed. Here are the typical locations:

  • NT/95/98/ME/2000/XP/Vista: C:\Program Files\ALMSysInc\LCPro

    If you upgraded from an earlier version prior to 2.1, then the program folder will most likely be C:\Program Files\Lease Calc Pro.

    This folder contains only the programs required to run Lease Calc Pro. No data files are used from this folder.

    Data Files
    The location of the data files folder is stored in the programs folder in a file named "LCPConnect.ini." Simply double click on the file to view its contents.
  • Vista: C:\ProgramData\ALMSysInc\LCPro
  • NT/2000/XP: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\ALMSysInc\LCPro
  • 95/98/ME: C:\Windows\Application Data\ALMSysInc\LCPro

    This folder contains all of the data files and any other file that is created or modified by the program.
