Hi, I use the function Process.Start with filename to open file using file type; The file is stored in the localized special folder C:\Utenti\..... I'm Italian and the folder C:\Users is stored as C:\Utenti
The function returns "File not found" also the file exists. If I change "Utenti" with "Users" the file is found.
But is not possible to translate this folder name because my program can be used by German, French.... users and any nationality has a different folder name.
How can I solve this problem? Why the Process.Start do not manage the localization? If I click on a file  from Explorer, the file is find.
