    According to MSDN article "SHGetSpecialFolderLocation":
    Remarks

    With Windows 2000, this function is superseded by SHGetFolderLocation.
    As for using PIDLIST_ABSOLUTE* parameter - see the rxample in http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb757028.aspx

    retrive the "Common Files" Folder? (C:/Program Files/Common Files)
    According to the MSDN article it's CSIDL_PROGRAM_FILES_COMMON (or CSIDL_PROGRAM_FILES_COMMONX86 in case of accessing x86 folder on x64 system).
    Best regards,
    Igor
