Documents and Settings

Hey okay here is the deal. I am trying to make a simple mcl file for WMP
so my XBOX will run a browser but I can't seem to gain access to
"C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start
Menu\Programs\Accessories\Media Center\Media Center Programs" as, I am
finding out, access is denied for some reason.

Can anyone help with this.

There is no Documents and Settings in Vista. The Documents and Settings, My
Documents, My Pictures, etc. are just virtual links called "junctions" in
Vista. They exist only to provide backwards compatibility for older
software which expects those locations to be there.

Look in the Public folder (or create a folder yourself) for the correct
place for this directory. The actual path is C:\Users\Public.
