I'd suggest this:

"C:Users" & @UserName & "AppDataprogramUser.txt"

Why in the world are you putting the @AppDataDir inside brackets? Where did you see that as the way to write that?

Use this:

FileWrite(@AppDataDir & "\program\User.txt", $User)

BTW, Windows uses back slashes to separate file path elements.

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.
