Okay, just to be nitpicky, it'd actually be %userprofile%\Application

Well, actually it's exactly the same.
%userprofile% = %systemdrive%\Documents and Settings\%username%

Typically, but not in every case. You can rename a user without changing
the profile name. I don't think there's any reason you'd want to do that,
but it could happen unintentionally.

And you can also change the profile path to be elsewhere by changing the
ProfileImagePath value at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows
NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList\[sid]

That will set the value of %userprofile%.

For the purpose of answering the OP I stand by my answer. Appears you guys
may not have enough to do?

Sorry, I was posting while tired failed to make my actual point. You
wrote:

Both Ray and I pointed out that that is not always the case. I should
have continued by saying " and therefore, you should use %useprofile%
instead of "%systemdrive%\Documents and Settings\%username%.
%userprofle% is guaranteed to point to the correct location. That's why
it exists."

I was bitten by this once myself and hoped to prevent someone else from
making the same mistake.
