CommonAppDataPath and UserAppDataPath
my application setup installs some MS Access mdb files, which will be modified during app's execution.
I thought about installing them in Application.CommonAppDataPath or Application.UserAppDataPath.
I'm just wondering why do they depend on the ProductVersion?
e. g. C:\ProgramData\WindowsFormsApplication1\WindowsFormsApplication1\22.214.171.124
When the application is upgraded, the modified mdb files will still be necessary.
Where do you suggest me to install the files and why do you think these paths depend on the ProductVersion?

Re: CommonAppDataPath and UserAppDataPath
During the update phase, have your setup program look for the older mdb version and move it into the newer, versioned location.
