Where did the UNZIPPED file go?

    Hello,

    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...

    c:\windows\desktop\xyz

    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"?
