Where does a Wine app save it's user defined data file?

Post by EmmoJohn » Wed Jul 17, 2019 8:58 am

I'm not a developer but I'm hoping this forum can help..

Where does Wine save a specific "app data" file?

I've successfully had a PC app called Equilab on my Mac via Wine (Winebottler). I have saved several "user defined ranges" within that app. Recently I've switched to another Mac but can't get that specific file to come with me.. If I zip and copy the app, it's "user defined saves" are not included.

The PC app should be saving a file called "PreflopUserdefined.ini" in a local app data folder.
But where would it be saved now as wine Mac app? Searched for hours and can't find it.

Thank you!

This program creates a directory in:
$WINEPREFIX/drive_c/users/<username>/Local Settings/Application Data/Equilab
(The default $WINEPREFIX is $HOME/.wine)
