    %systemroot% etc

    not sure if i found the right forum for this, but can anyone point me towards a list of all of these windows variables. I'm trying to come up with a basic batch file installer and i need to know the one that'll let me get the path to the desktop.

    TIA.

    Start a command prompt, run the "set" command with no parameters and it'll list all the environment variables.
    Check out the Forum Search. It's the short path to getting great results from this forum.
