    Need help with an install path

    I am trying to create an auto-install file for a game so that I can easily distribute my custom maps to people. I'm having a hard time figuring out what path variables I should use for the install. The files need to into these places:

    WinXP: C:\Documents and Settings\<User Name>\My Documents\My Games\Ironclad Games\Sins of a Solar Empire Rebellion\GalaxyForge

    I can do that with: #mydocuments#\My Games\Ironclad Games\Sins of a Solar Empire Rebellion\GalaxyForge

    But what do I do for Vista and Windows 7? The documents are supposed to go into the same folder, but in a Documents folder:

    Documents\My Games\Ironclad Games\Sins of a Solar Empire Rebellion\GalaxyForge

    What path should I use for Vista and Windows 7? (I'm going to make separate files for WinXP and Vista/7.)

    In Windows 7, #mydocuments# = C:\Users\<User Name>\Documents (for example).
    So, #mydocuments#\My Games\Ironclad Games\Sins of a Solar Empire Rebellion\GalaxyForge would look like the following:

    On Windows XP:
    C:\Documents and Settings\<User Name>\My Documents\My Games\Ironclad Games\Sins of a Solar Empire Rebellion\GalaxyForge

    On Vista/Win7:
    C:\Users\<User Name>\Documents\My Games\Ironclad Games\Sins of a Solar Empire Rebellion\GalaxyForge

    Great! It sounds like I only need one file for everyone then. Thanks a lot for clearing that up.
