Member nameDescription

The installation root for Visual Studio, for example, "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 10".


The user document folder where Visual Studio stores user-specific settings, for example, "C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\My Documents\Visual Studio 2005". Code snippets will appear under that path in "Code Snippets\[languageName]\My Code Snippets", where [languageName] is a language name such as "C#".

From textmgr2.idl:

enum _ExpansionToken {
   ET_MyDocs      = 1,
   ET_ProjDir     = 2,
   ET_InstallRoot = 3,
   ET_ProjItemDir = 4
typedef DWORD ExpansionToken;

These values are passed to the GetTokenPath method in the IVsExpansionManager interface.
