In VB.NET, where is the best place to save application scope data?  I am looking to save one or more data files to be used to persist application-level settings and configurations between different users.

This doesn't seem to work as each user as Windows seems to call up their own virtual copy of the file.
      Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.CommonApplicationData)

My.Settings only works for user-scope settings.  The application-scope settings get reset when the application is reloaded ... i.e. the data doesn't persist.
