On my XP computer, the location of 'My Documents' is C:\documents and settings\dan shelby\my documents.
On my friends XP computer, the location of 'My Documents' is: documents and settings\owner\my documents.
Since Windows invented the folder "My Documents" it does seem like the location of it should be the same for the same version of windows. Also, Visual Basic, another MicroSoft Windows product, allows a programmer to identify where the program is being executed by querying app.path. It seems like MicroSoft would also have provided the development programmer with something, such as app.documents to identify the location of "My Documents". Apparently, this test editor doesn't print the backslash.
The paths given above should have the backslash between the word settings and the next word. Also, between the word My and the previous word.
