Variables don't work ???

I'm trying to configure the destination path or backup trough the group policy setting and I can't make it work with an environment variable (one of the mentioned added features on 2015-07-05)

For instance, when I enter \myserver.mydomain.bla\backup-pst\%username% in the Outlook backup addin GPO settings.
After updating the policy on the workstations, If I go to the settings in outlook, I see the exact same path, with %username%, and if I click on the save button it prompts with an Undefined path error.

Am I writing the variable name in an incorrect format?
I can't find much documentation about this.

If you can shed some light here...

Thanks in advance for such a great tool. I'm in the testing phase yet but looks really promising.

Hello,
thanks for your feedback. I found the problem within the settings dialog.
The backup will work with variables but you currently cant save the settings dialog.
You can send me an email via contact form to get an updated version.
Problem will be fixed in 1.6 (fix is already available in development branch).

Kind regards,
Thomas
