    Hello everybody,

    target: saving a file from a panel to a fixed folder (Win10 music or roaming..)
    problem: File.getSpecialLocation() returns wrong folders (see below)
    system : win10 creators, Ctrlr 5.4.29, VS 2017
    questions:
    – is there a way to fix his?
    – if music/picture/…etc paths are all wrong, how reliable is userDocumentDirectory?
    – it there a way to get the folder where the panel resides?

    #SpecialLocationType: File.getSpecialLocation()

    userHomeDirectory: C:\Users\
    userDocumentsDirectory: C:\Users\
    \Documents
    userDesktopDirectory: C:\Users\
    \Desktop

    currentApplicationFile: C:\ProgramData
    invokedExecutableFile: C:\Users\Public\Documents
    currentExecutableFile: C:\Users\\AppData\Roaming

    userMusicDirectory: C:\App Program Files (x86)\Ctrlr\Ctrlr-Win32.exe
    userMoviesDirectory: C:\App Program Files (x86)\Ctrlr\Ctrlr-Win32.exe
    userPicturesDirectory: C:\App Program Files (x86)\Ctrlr\Ctrlr-Win32.exe

    userApplicationDataDirectory: C:\Users\\Music
    commonApplicationDataDirectory: C:\Users\
    \Videos
    tempDirectory: C:\Users\
    \Pictures

    globalApplicationsDirectory: C:\Users\\AppData\Local\Temp
