Personally, I just put my settings for SciTE in my document folder, and the SciTE_HOME
environment variable points there.
Moreover, it eases backup by separating programs and data. I suppose that's one of the
points of protecting Program Files from write (in most cases).
I went even further in my Win7 box at work (where I am denied to work as administrator)
and made my own ProgramFiles folder, where I can quietly add and update my freewares
