Using system environment variables in FotoStation

It is possible to use Windows system environment variables that refer to particular system folders and even create your own. This way, you can for example create a shared FotoStation configuration where an archive dynamically points to a user's working folder on a server, for example. All it takes is setting up the environment variable in the user's profile and referring to the variable in the FotoStation archive shortcut.

%HOMEPATH% for example refers to \Documents and Settings\{username}, and you can append this path by adding e.g. %HOMEPATH%\My Pictures to create a shortcut that points to the user's My Pictures folder.
