Windows 7 proper place to put code

Hi everyone, I am currently trying to update OS from XP to 7. In the past (XP) I was able to put my code just about any place in the Program directory. Win 7 on the other hand is giving me all kinds of write errors.

 

Any advice/help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thank you,

 

-J

 C:\Users\<LOGIN NAME>\ should be a safe place. I'd create a folder in this directory.

Thank you arctcad for a quick response,

 

I was hopping that thier is a place that will allow me to hardoce the path. Also a place that the average user can not temper with.

 

If anyone uses other directorise please advice,

 

Thank you in advance,

There is a magical folder that's called program data. Thats the place where you should put your data files. Or you can put in C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming

 

Kind regards,
