Change current directory in ITX 9

Change current directory from <install_dir>/logs to msl directory.

Or configure current directory for all launcher from dtx.ini.

How will this idea be used?

On "Transformation extender" previous version, current directory was map folder.

Due to possible error, a new feature was introduce on ITX 9, current directory is now <install_dir>/logs.

File without absolute path (resource registry missing, or invalid path construction) are written into <install_dir>/logs.

There is no more segregation between engine and application.

To restore this segregation we propose to change current directory msl folder or configure current directory in dtx.ini.
