Support for %ProgramData% - Folder

description

Hi,

as i figured out out i have to use [CommonAppDataFolder] for %ProgramData%.
Why not %ProgramData% supporting directly?

Regards
Martin

Sorry mate, you are asking the wrong person/posting to wrong project. :)

This decision was made years ago by MS. And they made the special folder mapping consistent across the all frameworks (e.g. .NET, MSI, WiX...). On Windows CommonAppData is "ProgramData".

This is the whole mapping:
