[VB6] - Program Files Variable?
Is there a variable I can use in a string for Program Files?

The %programfiles% variable at the DOS level will give you the program files directory. If your dealing with an x64 Windows Operating system you also want to look for an x86 Program Files directory.
Provides the environment variables on a particular system.Code:Dim i as Integer Text1.Text = "" i = 1 While Environ$(i) <> "" Text1.Text = Text1.Text + Mid(Environ$(i), 1, InStr(1, Environ(i), "=") - 1) + vbNewLine i = i + 1 Wend
To actually assign an environment variable to a variable in your application you would use:Here is a link that tells another technique to use: http://vbtechniques.com/content.asp?a=co&cID=624Code:dim strProgramFile as string strProgramFile = Environ(”ProgramFiles”)
