%ProgramData% variable doesn't work in Windows XP

Recommended Posts

The variable %ProgramData% doesn' work on my computer (Windows XP SP3) unless I define this manually as a system variable. I guess that this is not what you want users need to do to make this winapp.ini (embedded) entry work


[Avast! Antivirus 5]
Detect=HKCU\Software\ALWIL Software\Avast\5.0
FileKey1=%ProgramData%\Alwil Software\Avast5\report|avast.xsl;avast.xsl;Resident protection.txt;Simple user interface.txt;Simple user interface*.xml
FileKey2=%ProgramData%\Alwil Software\Avast5\log|*.*


See this thread http://forum.pirifor...showtopic=34454


Additionally, this path


FileKey1=%ProgramData%\Avast Software\Avast\log|*.*


in the [Avast! Antivirus 6] entry doesn't exist on my computer, although the respective Detect key is being detected

Ccleaner itself manages this variable across systems. It points to %CommonAppData% on XP systems.
