About the Preferences

Preferences’ are settings that are user dependant. The user can choose what suits him/her best, for example:

  • Units and decimals,
  • The language

At the first startup of ConCrete, ConCrete takes the default values (stored in the Program Files). When you work with ConCrete, you will customize these settings along the way. These changes are stored in a set of files in the folder C:\Users\**YourUsername**\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\BuildSoft\ConCrete.
