What builds of Windows XP localize the Program Files path?

    We are researching an issue with localized Program File paths. One example
    is Danish XP, it uses c:/programmer

    If someone could provide a list of the OS's that do not use "program files"
    but some localized version, that would be most appreciated.

    Thanks,

    jon

    It doesn't work like this. You use
    HLKM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ProgramFilesDir and
    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\CommonFilesDir registry
    values to know it.
