I'm trying to get Mathematica to look in a different, version-tracked folder for the 'TextResources' files that it uses to build the Front End. I've prepended my version-tracked folder path to the
PrivatePaths, both from the Options Inspector and using SetOptions. Both of these methods make Mathematica use my version-tracked files the next time I restart the Front End, but it quickly reverts to the versions at
$InstallationDirectory\SystemFiles\FrontEnd\TextResources\Windows within one or two Front End restarts.
I'm not certain what triggers this switch back to the default directory, but I'd really like to stop it from happening so that I can reliably and persistently use my customized, version-tracked instances of the 'TextResources' files. How might I accomplish this?
