    I have just installed FIDDLER v4.6 (under C:\Program Files (x86)\Fiddler2.) When starting up it gives below message. Rather than add relevant permissions to that network path, I'd rather re-config so the path is on local drive. However, I can't find a relevant config under Preferences tab; is it configured within REGEDIT, i.e. to define startup and/or script paths ?? Thanks in anticipation. 


    Fiddler has encountered an unexpected problem. If you believe this is a bug in Fiddler, please copy this message by hitting CTRL+C, and submit a bug report at

    It looks like this path is set up as your "My Documents" folder. That's where Fiddler gets it from.

    The name of this setting is fiddler.config.path.captures. You can change it by adding it to View->Tabs->Preferences or by typing in the quick exec box prefs set fiddler.config.path.captures "<path>"
