Writing to $ALLUSERSPROFILE

Mark,

Maybe, the problem is not that a system is localised but that the  
user on that particular localised system is logged in as user with  
limited permissions. You can probably write to that folder only if  
you are logged in as administrator. Not that I am 100% sure, but this  
seems a good theory to me.

Best,

Mark
