Hello Günter,

I'm not sure, if the intention of this folder is to put application option
data into it. At least on my machine, no software is using this public path
for app data. So there is supposed to be another place to put such data.
But thanks for the hint, it could be at least a workaround.

Hello Tiemo,

you can use the public folder . Have a look here:

(e.g. specialFolderPath("0x002E") is C:/Users/Public/Documents

Best
