Hello

I am just start to do my first experiences with bitcoin.

After i reinstalled the Bitcoin client (and delete the bitcoin folder in the user/roaming directory) the settings i did after the first installation - like activate of the proxy - are still present. It looks, that the bitcoin client save somewhere its settings. I expected that the settings i did change are reseted after an new install.

I would like to understand it better.

Thank you John.

But, i don't understand, how the bitcoin client remember the configuration after a re-install of the client. I would expected that there are the default settings after a new installation.

Also if i delete "%APPDATA%\Bitcoin\ " after i uninstalled bitcoin, the configuration i did before are still present after the new installation of bitcoin. This is what i not understand. Bitcoin should create a new configuration file with the default values. But it looks as bitcoin overtake the old configuration from somewhere.
