Error message on closing Windows or Closing the MySql system Tray Monitor.

Cannot create file "C:\Documents and Settings\Admin\Application Data\MySQL\mysqladmin_systray.ini". the system cannot find the path specified.

Error occurs only on a new installation if the MySQL Administrator hasn't been run first. The MySQL System Tray application DOESN'T CREATE the directory "MySQL" under "C:\Documents and Settings\Admin\Application Data\" before it tries to save the file.

How to repeat:
Remove the directory containing the *.INI files and try to close System Tray Monitor.

Suggested fix:
Check for the directory and if it is missing create it.
