Any ideas on how to change this? Under unix the environment variable
$HOME points to the user's home directory. Is there a similar
environment variable under windows that point to C:\Document and

On windows 2000 and windows XP, USERPROFILE points to this directory, not sure if it's the same on 95/98.

No it doesn't exist at least on Win95. Imho it will certainly also depend on whether Windows is configured for multi-user access or just one standard user for everybody. The appropriate directories will not even exist.

I'm not sure who is having trouble, but my guess is users installing gnubg as an admin type user, then trying to play as another user (with less rights). As 95/98 don't usually have multiple users they won't have this problem.
