The paragraph being referenced is one which refers to a system wide, common,
Application Data, not the user's "Application Data" directory itself which
appears in the "\Documents and Settings\<user>\Local Settings\" directory
and is referenced using the APPDATA environment variable. If there is an
application data area common to all users, it's not in the "\Documents and
Settings\All Users" tree, or not named "Application Data".
