Please clarify that under Windows, the configuration file is searched for in the following order:

  1. as specified by the -conf startup option if any.
  2. dosbox.conf, if it exists in the current working directory
  3. dosbox.conf in the program binary directory

As of 0.73, 2 new steps were added:
  1. As specified by a -conf command line parameter
  2. dosbox.conf, if it exists in the current working folder
  3. dosbox-version.conf, if it exists in %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\DOSBox\
  4. As last resort, it creates it on the spot in %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\DOSBox\ and then uses it

The 0.73 order is the correct order. for older versions it didn't look specificly in the program binary directory. That one just happened to be the same as the working/startup directory
