When I create new element, I try to define it like "Folder" and fill the "Path File", for example, %ALLUSERSPROFILE% but it does not work.

Now the question is : how can i use the Windows Environment Variables instead of explicit declaration, in example above, C:\ProgramData ?

The same thing happens for the %USERPROFILE% or other Environment Variables ...

Thanks a lot !!!


P.S. : Sorry, for my bad English.

While you probably noticed several signs that environment variables were being automatically expanded *internally*, due to an oversight the SEE_MASK_DOENVSUBST flag was not being used when *launching* the actual items, which caused those variables NOT to be expanded by ShellExecuteEx.

Fixed it for next release.

If you want to get it a bit sooner than the official release, make sure that 'Notify me of beta (test) versions' is enabled in the Advanced tab of Preferences.
