What directories can an application run by non-elevated user write to Win7?
I have a problem with my application reading and writing to any other than the User directory (C:\\Users\\MyName\\AppData\\MyCompany\\MyAppName - in Win7). What other directories are open to the non-elevated user? I have googled this issue and have come up with volumes of blah, blah, stuff but no clear cut answer. I do not wish to programatically alter the security of any file or folder nor in any way change the target machine OS or file system. I have tried C:\\Users\\..\\AppData\\Local\\.. , C:\\Users\\..\\AppData\\LocalLow\\.., C:\\Users\\AppData\\.. , but none allow non-elevated user to write to these dirs. With elevated users I can write to C:\\Windows\\system32\\.. and lots of other dirs, but that doesnt help me.
Your help greatly appreciated. Thanks.
