just curious: where exactly are these data stored? On the file system or inside the extension?
What happens if the extension is updated with a newer version?
It's being stored in the CS(XX)ServiceManger > preference folder.
So I guess an updated extension would still retrieve the data from there.
Yes. But all extensions save into the same file. I abandoned the standard prefs a long time ago in favor of saving them myself. If the preference for one extension gets corrupted, it'll affect them all...
yes that makes sense. Are you writing xml to save preferences? And how about sensitive info like passwords?
I try to only save hashes or some other keys and not passwords. Either way, I make a practice or encrypting the data before I save it as binary to file...
have you ever been able to use EncryptedLocalStore on CS6 apps? I'm still having issues with a null object trying to retrieve them.
EncrytedLocalStore is supposed to work with CS6 apps? I missed that. I has not worked until now, so I did not even try...
Yes, it is *the* recommended way for CS6 - according to the EB documentation.
And by the way it seems broken, but it may be just me.
Recommended? I can't exactly recommend a CS6-only feature at this point...
