    Environment.SpecialFolder.Personal (C#) & CSIDL_PERSONAL (C++) Problem, Win 7

    So I redirected My Documents folder in Win 7. To D:\.

    Now I want to get the My Documents folder in a C# app and in a C++ game, I want to get the same file in the same My Documents folder. So I'm doing this:

    C++:
    CODE
    SHGetFolderPath(NULL, CSIDL_PERSONAL, NULL, SHGFP_TYPE_DEFAULT, path);

    And I get: path = "C:\Users\DAaaMan64\Documents"

    C#:
    CODE
    string path = Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.Personal);

    And I get: path = "D:\\"

    ^^ that is the redirected My Documents folder.

    As far as I'm concerned this is a bug.

    I'm about ready to just pipe it to the child process. What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks.

    Problem solved, should be using SHGFP_TYPE_CURRENT instead of SHGFP_TYPE_DEFAULT
