You shouldn't need to call a program. But if you do Start -> Run... -> %APPDATA% it should pop up an Explorer window with the appropriate folder open, if you're curious.

If you have access to the registry, you can read HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\User Shell Folders\AppData, as documented here: http://technet.micro...y/cc962614.aspx

If you're creating an installer I'd highly recommend that you use a well-known installer technology rather than trying to roll your own. Visual Studio, for example, can be used to create an MSI file, and it will resolve all of this for you, as well as provide for uninstallation (and also be compatible with remote deployment via e.g. Group Policy).

It appears that the gentleman thought C++ was extremely difficult and he was overjoyed that the machine was absorbing it; he understood that good C++ is difficult but the best C++ is well-nigh unintelligible.
