App_Data Folder and Windows Operating Systems

jigdog asked
Last Modified: 2013-11-26
I have an VB.NET application that installs a DB to the App_Data folder and uses that variable in the code to locate the database.  It was written under XP.  We have recently installed it to a Vista machine, and the App_Data folder was finally found (after much searching) under the 'Users' folder.  Does anyone have a resource of information concerning how this varies from OS to OS?  Thanks.
