OK, so, when i create an application for sale purposes (e.g. a game) how can i store info on their computer without having to install things like sqlite or compact edition etc.
For example, say i created a text based game and it used a user name to define different users. How would i save the current users progress, and where would i store the user names?
I'd rather not use SQL Compact Edition etc, as it gets a bit messy with installation (i.e. i have to attach all the sql dll files to the programs folder etc)
