I suggest you ...

The Profiles.xml file should be saved in All Users folder

If I have multiple users accounts, the battery profile is saved only for each user. When I license battery bar, the license is activated only for one user. It should be saved for all users.

    The problem with this is that the All Users folder is a protected folder in Vista and Windows 7. You must have admin privileges to write to it. I may be able to get around this by creating the file during install and giving the file write permissions, but I’ll need to test that out.

        why not just save in program files? or let the user choose where to store the file? maybe with a ini file?

        Marc> You should be able to use it just fine with different users. The profile data will be stored per user so the time remaining estimates will be slightly different based on different usage patterns, but the software won't crash or fail to work, or it shouldn't. If you have an error message of some kind then you need to post that at our support forums (http://osirisdevelopment.com/forum).

        Use "Public" folders instead , or \ProgamData (requires elevated priv).

        That's true, I believe this is exactly how other apps do it. It's also best practice to store app config in that folder.
