More %ProgramFiles% Exist?

Discussion in 'Windows XP General' started by Larry(LJL269), Sep 24, 2003.

  1. Since I'm now dual booting XP, I have to create a shortcut
    that points to an entree in START folder that is generic. I
    now know Environmental Variables exist but %ProgramFiles% is
    used in shoertcuts but NOT defined there. I'd like to know:
    1- where it's defined & others like it.
    2- Anything to avoid if I wanna define my own
    Environmental Variable?
    Search for 'Environmental Variable' in KB got usual 2 hits-
    1 is here!

    Your help is MUCH appreciated. Thanks- bye- Larry

    Any advise given is my attempt to show appreciation for all
    the excellent help I've received here but I'm no MVP so it
    may only apply NUGS (Normally, Usually, Generally, Sometimes :)
