Thanks. The app I'm working with doesn't create any new folders inside
the program folder, but that's good to know.

This is my main question because we have one customer who is having some
unusual trouble. He uses Vista. The app was not able to create a folder
in his Documents folder. I don't know why, since it has been working for
other customers, but I wondered if it was a permissions issue.
If an app is running as administrator, and the user always has rights to
their own Documents folder, I thought the app could create folders
inside Documents without any trouble. But in this one case, it failed.
