      • System Folder
        c:\windows\system\ = old 16-bit system folder

      • Program Files
        c:\program files\ = Program Files
    • 64-Bit Windows
      • System Folder
        c:\windows\system32\ = 64-bit System Folder
        c:\windows\SysWOW64\ = 32-bit System Folder
      • Program Files
        C:\Program Files\ = 64-Bit program files folder
        C:\Program Files (x86)\ = 32-bit program files folder
Really confusing and complicated. This is for information purpose only, the location should never be hard coded.
