[REBOL] Re: USERPROFILE was RE: Re: creating a shortcut

From: bry::itnisk::com at: 31-Oct-2003 16:58

>> get-env "OS"
== "Windows_NT"
>> get-env "SystemRoot"
== "C:\WINDOWS" I'm guessing you can't do get-env "USERPROFILE" ] because if one uses the registry and goes to: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\She ll Folders USERPROFILE would evaluate to (on NT based) C:\Documents and Settings\ joined with content before next \ of whatever key other than fonts at that location. Let's suppose at the Desktop key. So if there was an OS-Object built up, one could use the path to get things OS-Object/Userprofile and it would be equivalent to an expanded USERPROFILE A minimal registry navigable as an object. (hmm, This is probably not making much sense, perhaps I don't explain things well in short emails.)
