In my program I need to create a directory that every
user of the computer can access. The directory is created
as a subdirectory to the Program folder and it is created
while being an Administrator.
When running as a normal user on the same I want my
program to be able to write files into this directory.
When running on Windows XP this does not work.

Can someone help me with this?
