%ALLUSERSPROFILE% problem


 Share

Recommended Posts

Hello, i have a problem with %ALLUSERSPROFILE% variable, i use it in WPI.

Before, in Windows XP i use the variable %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Desktop without any problem, the problem start in Windows Vista and later in Windows 7, the path changed "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users" to "C:\Users\<user>\AppData" on some it is mapped to "C:\ProgramData" or "C:\Users\Public"

Does i have a variable to work in Windows XP, Vista and 7, in new formated systems and in old formated systems ?

I see that usually, depending the manufaturer the paths changes.

I think that the variable %USERPROFILE% Works in all, but i like to use %ALLUSERSPROFILE% for example for making shortcuts for all users.

Sorry for my english and Thanks :rolleyes:

%CSIDL_COMMON_DESKTOPDIRECTORY%

Needs to be added to the variables section for Vista and 7.

Hello, first, thank you.

I have try to write this in the adress bar in windows xp and also in windows 7 and it doesn't work.

How i make this variable work?

I have read about this before, but always i think that the people was talking about this in C#

I have tried to put this in a comand line of WPI but without funtion.

For Windows 7 it has been changed, use this for accessing the Public Desktop (formerly all users desktop).

%PUBLIC%\Desktop

For adding links to the All Users Start Menu, make them in either of these locations (both are exactly the same)

%PROGRAMDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs

%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs

Greater details can be found here.
