Unfortunately, I have already tried what you suggest. In fact I tried this before I made my original post. On my windows 7 I have 3 users ADMIN (has the AppData value Gail) Gail (has the AppData value Gail_2) Joe (has the AppData value Joe)
I does not matter which user I'm logged in as, I always get the same value Gail
Other installers I've used in the past and some I'm testing now, do not have this problem (they have other issues)
If you add %APPDATA% to any user or system environment variable by using the following method, %APPDATA% may not be resolved to the appropriate user application data folder:
* Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties. * On the Advanced tab, click Environment Variables. * Add a new user or system environment variable named PATH. Set the Variable value entry to %APPDATA%. * Apply the settings.
If you then start a command session (Cmd.exe) and check the PATH environment variable by using the set path command, %APPDATA% may not be expanded to the appropriate user application folder. Instead, you see "%APPDATA%."
