Hi All,

I am using Shell.GetFolder(SHF_APPLICATIONDATA) to return the path to a users Application Data folder. However, I would like to return the All Users equivalent. SHF_APPLICATIONDATA_COMMON isn't available, is there any other option in AMS?

Secondly, I notice that some applications (e.g. McAfee) change the "everyone" security permissions to full control on a folder they create in "All User App Data" during install. Is it possible to do this in AMS?

Thanks for any assistance.

We will look at adding support for common application data to the next release.

As far as changing security permissions go, there is no way to directly do that from AMS50.
