My application saves cookies by default in cookies folder (IE). BUt the problem is that few users have restrictions on their computers and automatically a scheduled task clears their cookies on daily basis. This is hectic for them to reset the cookies again.
To resolve this issue and unburden those users, I have a set of questions?
1) Can i save cookies in different folder and then read it from there? Logic behind is that since the scheduled task that deletes the cookies, cleans up the cookies folder, but if the cookie file related to my application is stored in different location it won't delete it and users can still see their customizations.
2) If this can be done, then how?
3) Other wise, is there any other alternative to cookies in such scenarios?
4) can i have permanent cookies that cannot be deleted at all unless user wants it to?
Thanks in advance,
Programmer in distress
