I tried to create and write to a dat file with the UAC on to the Environment.SystemDirectory and it ends up in the virtual store.

What directory could I use with the UAC "on" beside the current directory so that its not quite that visible to the user. Or can I leave it in the VS.?

I thought it would end up under system32 but it appears to be sending the file to the virtual store because of the UAC.

C:\Users\MYPC\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Windows\System32


Private EFile As String = Environment.SystemDirectory "\sysmondata4.dat"
