Please, implement an easier way to define the cache path, should be placed at
Options > General > Caches

OK the cache location may be changed now, but the usecase to do so was not mentioned.
Anyway, as written in another thread I am wondering if an option to switch it off would improve performance on >100000 collections.

Can you just move Similarity to cache folder and launch in portable mode "-portable"?

Just to follow up this.

Any plan to implement a direct configuration option to change the cache location? instead of having to edit the config.ini?

Are there plans to put this cache option right inside the program options? Instead of having to manually change it at the ini file?

Yes in normal installation config.ini located in "C:\Users\<currentUser>\AppData\Roaming\Similarity\config.ini" (shorty "%appdata%\Similarity\config.ini"), you can launch Similarity with portable mode switch (/portable) to store every file in same folder with main exe module.
Windows UAC protection forbids writting into "Program Files" directory for any program without Admin permissions.

The ini file to add the cache path is:
C:\Users\<currentUser>\AppData\Roaming\Similarity\config.ini  ?

Is there a way to make that config.ini file to reside on the installation path? instead of the user path?

New version has this feature, you need to edit ini file with configuration add text line:
Just be sure you using build 1941, previous 1940 had some issues.
