Getting Windows folder names

Hi all,

I'm sure there is an easy answer to this but I haven't found it, so resorting to asking for help...

How do I find the name of the 'Common Application data' folder on the system where my qvw is deployed? So on a Windows 7 system this is usually "c:\programdata", in Windows 2003 this is probably "c:\documents and settings\all users\application data".

I've tried using the GetFolderPath with a parameter of 'CommonApplicationData' but that returns the 'my documents' folder name.

Any pointers gratefully received.

Cheers,

Dave
