Where did the UNZIPPED file go?

    Here's the scenario:

    1) My customers download a zip file from my site (call it zip.exe) to their desktop.

    2) They then unzip the file to a folder (call it xyz) which I have set by default to be saved to their desktop, as follows...


    3) For all versions of Windows (98, 2000, etc.) EXCEPT XP, the customer finds the xyz folder (which contains 3 unzipped files) on their desktop - no problem.

    BUT, XP users do NOT find folder xyz on their desktop. Where is it? (I have not yet upgraded from my Windows 98 to XP so I can't determine this for myself).

    I would assume that customers can find the file by following this path...

    Start - My Computer - C Drive - Windows - Desktop - xyz

    Is this correct?

    I'd really appreciate a reply. Thank you!

    The correct path would be "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Desktop" for Windows XP

    Thanks pappcam. So is the key that "All Users" must be in the path as opposed to "Username"?
