Macro @FavoritesCommonDir shows wrong path

Recommended Posts

ajag

Hi everybody,

I've an issue with the macro '@FavoritesCommonDir'. It shows the same path as '@FavoritesDir'.

When I run this

#include <Array.au3>
Local $Array[2][2] = [["@FavoritesCommonDir",@FavoritesCommonDir],["@FavoritesDir",@FavoritesDir]]
_ArrayDisplay($Array, "Paths")

I get [seeattached screenshot]

'@FavoritesCommonDir' points to my personal FavoritesDir rather than to the common FavDir "C:UsersPublicFavorites"

Windows 7 x64  (It's the same result when running skript compiled as 32 or 64 bit.)

What version of Autoit are you running? I tested your code with v3.3.8.1, and the results were as expected.

Also, check the values of ALLUSERSPROFILE and USERPROFILE from the command prompt.

I get the same results on my Win 7 machine, but it might have something to do with it being on a domain, or because I had the folder redirected to a network share.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

I'm running 3.3.8.1,

ALLUSERSPROFILE=C:ProgramData

USERPROFILE=C:UsersAndreas

(Thats Okay)

AutoIt3 uses the SHGetFolderPathW or SHGetFolderPathA direct calls and it looks like this is the standard behaviour for Vista and up.

The call uses KNOWNFOLDERID and when you scroll down in that page you find:

FOLDERID_Favorites
GUID{1777F761-68AD-4D8A-87BD-30B759FA33DD}
Display NameFavorites
Folder TypePERUSER
Default Path%USERPROFILE%Favorites
CSIDL Equivalent: CSIDL_FAVORITES, CSIDL_COMMON_FAVORITES
Legacy Display NameFavorites
Legacy Default Path%USERPROFILE%Favorites

Jos,

thanks for your explanation.

Should this be mentioned in the helpfile?
