C:\BookIt etc. SportsTrak's data folders of carnivals are best placed

If you are running an older SportsTrak, Vista will force SportsTrak.ini
into C:\Users\Username\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Windows. Different
users will then experience different settings and potentially see different
data. An upgrade to SportsTrak 2100 is advised.
