I've got the Mac side of things covered but where do people usually 
store user preferences on Window's PCs?

Is (from the Microsoft Library)...

CSIDL_APPDATA (0x001a)
Version 4.71. The file system directory that serves as a common 
repository for application-specific data. A typical path is 
C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data.

...the most appropriate location or are there better spots?

TIA,

Terry...
