When using Active Directory group policy on Windows and the environment variables for UserProfile and HomeDrive are different, PDF Studio will use the UserProfile variable as PDF Studio “user home folder”, which is where user preferences and settings for PDF Studio will be stored.

To change PDF Studio user home folder for PDF Studio¬† (this is actually changing the “user.home” property for all Java application), you can run this command:

set _JAVA_OPTIONS=-Duser.home=C:/Users/Leila/newhome

or add the following line under the pdfstudio11.vmoptions under the PDF Studio installation folder.

-Duser.home=C:/Users/Leila/newhome
