The APIs are in shfolder.dll which works on all flavours of Windows. The
"whole world of user config" did _not_ change that much; the registry
layout is the same, only the default config directories moved from
"%SystemRoot%\Profiles" to "%SystemDrive%\Documents and Settings"

Michael, check the following location in the Registry:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders

There should be a key called AppData that refers to the right directory.
