Obtaining the "Program Files"-Folder:
 I think the standard way to get it, is to use the windows API function
with nFolder = CSIDL_PROGRAM_FILES, see

ATTENTION: In in earlier documentation, (for WinCE3.0) I read, that the
operating system returns FALSE, even if this function succeeds. I have not
tried this function on WinCE, but use it on standard windows systems.
