Hello Guys

I have a problem regarding the understanding of folder created in “C:\Documents and Settings\” by Windows.

Problem 1: How some users IUSR*, VUSR*, ASPNET, etc defined by Microsoft, all without user folders in "c:\Documents & Settings...”?

Problem 2: Does IIS or ASPNET when installed create some invisible directory, as I have seen they don’t create any user folders in "c:\Documents & Settings...”

Now a problem related to my project?

Problem 3: When I install one of the products of my company with administrative rights, windows automatically creates a User Profile in "c:\Documents & Settings...” , and its not required for the products nor for the other sub-products , only some servers and services run under this uses it but with some minor configuration issue and with change in registry we can change that too. But now I want to write some “C“API which I could moved in the Install Shield add-on DLL, so that no USER PROFLE should be created in "c:\Documents & Settings...” when I install my product?

Reason to do that is: Some customer might edit this User profile and which might cause some error in the product?

That’s the reason I want to make this USER folder to be deleted or created in some temp location or hidden somewhere not accessible by any of the customer.

Please provide inputs so that I can proceed further.

Thanks in advance
