      I am using NoteTab Std 4.95/np (Full Version) on XP Home with SP2 installed,
      and get nothing returned by ^$GetShellFolder(SystemFolder)$ with any of the
      22 entries possible for SystemFolder, used in the recent problem (Ed Brown).
      What has happened?

        Warner,

        First, under ^$GetShellFolder(xxxxxxxx)$ I see only 19 possibilities in
        NoteTab Help, they all work for me except, Administrative Tools and
        that's because I don't have a C:\WINDOWS\Start
        Menu\Programs\Administrative Tools\ folder.

        For anyone interested I made 2 clips to create a blank file and display
        display all the possibilities for my computer. These variables and
        functions are universal for XP, Win2K and I think NT.

        It's very quick and after you've found what you need just delete the
        newly created files.

        Each clip creates a new file with the expanded info in it. Pretty handy
        when writing clips.
        To save time I'll attach them for anyone that would like to try them. I
        hope the lines don't get wrapped to badly in email.
