I am trying to create a folder under CommonAppDataFolder during install. It works fine for my Windows7 x64 computer, but the folder does not get created for WindowsXP x86 computer.
In Windows7 I get a folder "C:\ProgramData\MyCompany\MyProgram"
In Windows XP I would have expected a folder "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\MyCompany\MyProgram", but that folder does not get created. On both computers I can manually create the folder with the user I am logged into, so I don't think its a permission thing.
In VS Setup Project I create a custom folder using add special folder saying that the DefaultLocation is: [CommonAppDataFolder][Manufacturer]\[ProductName], then I set the Property property to "COMMONAPPDATAFOLDER".
Is there something I am missing? Something specific to Windows XP?
