File location placeholders in The Grid 2
The Grid 2 allows you to use “placeholders” in the path names specified. This is useful when specifying the location of applications with the “Run a program” command or if you wish to specify the location of your Users folder.
The placeholders refer to special folders that are created by Windows. The names of these folders may be different according to the version of Windows that you are using and/or the language that Windows is installed in. Using placeholders ensures that the correct path name is always used.
Placeholders must be typed with a percent (%) sign before and after the placeholder, with no spaces. The available placeholders are listed here:
The Public Documents folder. A typical path on Vista is C:UsersPublicDocuments,
and XP C:Documents and SettingsAll UsersDocuments
The Program Files folder. A typical path is C:Program Files.
The sensory folder
The folder containing all The Grid 2 users
The user folder for the user currently active in The Grid 2
The virtual folder representing the My Documents desktop item.
The virtual folder representing the Windows desktop, the root of the namespace.

A folder for components that are shared across applications. A typical path is C:Program FilesCommon.
The file system directory that serves as a common repository for application-specific data. A typical path is C:Documents and
