Short description of error
For an Application Template which provides a startup.blend and a userpref.blend:

  • At opening: The main preferences are read.
  • At saving: The main preferences and the application template preferences are written.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  • Install the application template:
  • In SplashScreen choose Example Template
  • Open the console, you can read:

Read prefs: C:\Users\Name\AppData\Roaming\Blender Foundation\Blender\2.80\config\userpref.blend

It's wrong, the path must be:


  • Open User preferences, change something, save preferences. In the console:

Writing userprefs: 'C:\Users\Name\AppData\Roaming\Blender Foundation\Blender\2.80\config\userpref.blend' ok
Writing userprefs app-template: 'C:\Users\Name\AppData\Roaming\Blender Foundation\Blender\2.80\config\Example_Template\userpref.blend' ok

It writes both main userpref and the app-template's. It must write only the app-template's.
