This would cause trouble in at least two cases that I've seen. One was
a multiboot machine that had Windows 2000 on D: and Windows XP on C:.
The other was a machine that had the Program Files folder copied, for
reasons I don't recall (and perhaps only temporarily), to the D: drive.
Use one of the defined APIs for getting this information, not a hack
like this please.
