We are currently trying to package Cassandra with our application.
In windows our server does not want to start because it want to write to CASSANDRA_HOME\.toDelete, since we install to 'C:\program files\...' this is not possible when started under a non privileged user. We were hoping that setting pointers for the data and log dir to a writable location (somewhere under user home) would be enough to start cassandra but this component wants to write to a path that we cannot modify.
For us there are a couple of solutions:
1) the location can be specified using a system property like data and log dirs
2) this file is written to the data location
Our current work arround would be to patch this class file but that is hard to maintain.
