I agree with the below. But I have never seen a version of Windows on
which c:\ProgramData was the actual path for FOLDERID_ProgramData. Can
you reference documentation that states that it was there, for some
version? This documentation speaks of:
c:\Documents and Settings\AllUsers\Application Data (which I knew from
XP, and I think 2000, not sure I remember NT)
In Vista.0, Vista.1, and Vista.2, I guess it is moved to
Neither of those would result in C:\ProgramData\Python.
