1)how can i find out the Windows Installation drive in which the user is working.? I need this to navigate to the ApplicationData in DocumentsandSettings.

2)Also how can i get the user name too so that i can goto ApplicaitionData.? Eg: "D:\Documents and Settings\user\Application Data".

Answer

Look at combining Environment.GetFolderPath and Environment.SpecialFolder to do this.

Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.ApplicationData)
